Many providers do not practice stress reduction techniques despite endorsing the importance of self-care ideas, techniques, and recommendations with caregivers, youth, and families. With research demonstrating that the amount of time spent working with traumatized clients strongly predicted secondary trauma in helping professionals and caregivers, the necessity of self-care as a critical component of managing vicarious trauma is clear. Learning self-care practices experientially provides professionals with an additional level of familiarity in working with caregivers to implement their own self-care practices.
