It is not uncommon for service providers who work with youth in out of home care to experience secondary trauma. While secondary trauma can be experienced in a multitude of ways for service-providers, it is known to impact the capacity to provide effective care for youth and can increase feelings of isolation and exhaustion. By engaging in a dialogue that centers on the impact of secondary trauma among service providers and their work with foster youth, participants can work together to collaborate on strategies and skills to manage their experiences of secondary trauma in their work.
