This highly interactive training is designed to address the self-care needs of resource families and kinship families impacted by traumatic life events of foster youth. Caregivers are encouraged to verbalize their understanding and connectedness to the multiple aspects of compassion fatigue and secondary traumatization. By taking a self-inventory, participants will see first-hand the levels of stress they experience. The group will look at several tools and techniques to circumvent the most challenging aspects of compassion fatigue and to be able to regain a state of neuro-physiological (mind-body) regulation, recovery and resilience.
