July 2023 Lunch & Learn: Coping with Secondary Trauma and Self-preservation in HaPC Practice

It is well understood that the practice of hospice and palliative social work exposes us to the suffering of other people. Understanding the dynamics of vicarious or secondary trauma, and the evidence-based strategies for self-preservation as we work in this rewarding field are essential aspects of personal well-being and sustainability. 

Date: Friday, July 7, 2023 | 12:00-1:00 pm Eastern | 9:00-10:00 am Pacific

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:
  • Describe the dynamics of exposure to suffering and the impact of vicarious (VT/ ST) or secondary trauma on social work practitioners.
  • Describe the 5 attributes of the resilient practitioner.
  • Identify 2 evidence-based approaches to ameliorating the impact of VT/ST.
