Addressing Secondary Trauma at the Community or Workforce level

I am the Assistant Director of the Center on Trauma and Adversity at CWRU.  I am seeking 2 presenters as part of our day long Expanding the Toolkit training institute in Cleveland on October 5.  The theme this year is Caring for Self While Caring for Others.  We are in talks to bring in Laura van Dernoot Lipsky as the keynote.  The event will be Livestreamed to reach a broader audience.  

I am interested in featuring folks who are addressing STS/VT on a broader level-- what models or projects are you aware of?  What's being done in your community? Diversity (race, ethnicity, ability, gender, sexuality, etc) of presenters is prioritized.  We do have a small budget to cover travel/expenses/honorarium.  Please feel free to comment here, or e-mail me with suggestions or connections.  As always, I am grateful for your labor!

Let me know - thrilled to see this moving forward! Jondi

HI Jennifer - i wanted to alert you to our Speakers and Trainers Bureau for possible presenters (found on the home site blue navigation bar). Also, you may be interested in the film Portraits of Professional Caregivers (and you may want to reach out to Vic Compher the director and co-producer.

I hope you share here about your training once you get it planned and then share a summary of it with us as well!

Hi Jennifer,  I'd be happy to speak with you about our work in Philadelphia and how the Philadelphia ACE Task Force has been working on promoting STS policies starting with City workers - we have been engaged in a year long process with our City Council to promote attention to preventing and mitigating the impact of STS. Please feel free to e-mail me at llieberman@healthfederation.org.
