Youth who have recently been removed from their homes are often brought to the Assessment Center as they await their next placement. For this reason, providers at the Assessment Center are often exposed to high levels of trauma as they support youth that have recently experienced or have a history of experiencing different forms of abuse, neglect, or suffering. This training offers the opportunity to discuss and learn about the impact of secondary trauma and compassion fatigue on providers and caregivers. Providers attending this training will understand the importance of practicing self-care techniques to reduce the impact of secondary trauma.
