Casa Pacifica, 1722 South Lewis Rd., Camarillo

Presenter: Nicole Klasey
This training will discuss vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and moral distress that can arise in the social service field. When individuals don’t intentionally care for themselves, it can lead to burnout, premature department from an organization, etc. The trainers will discuss strategies participants can utilize to increase their self-care to be more resilient and compassionate. It’s essential for social service providers to prioritize our overall well-being so we can model it to the youth and families we work with.

Objectives - At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Define the concept of vicarious trauma in the context of out-of-home care
- List three strategies to promote well-being when working with youth impacted by
trauma
- Describe the importance of compassion for self and others served
