The experience of loss and secondary trauma for service providers, caregivers, and others who work with foster youth can at times impact quality care that is offered. This training looks at how vicarious and secondary trauma may impact those who work with system involved youth. This is an opportunity to explore the trauma that exists at micro and macro levels, and how these dynamics influence and are influenced by the direct dynamics within families and teams. Participants learn strategies to mitigate the effects of secondary trauma and strategies of sustainability for those who work long term with foster care.
