The presentation will focus on the impact of trauma on treatment providers such as therapists and case managers. Important concepts such as vicarious trauma, secondary stress, compassion fatigue, burnout, and resilience will be defined and discussed. Warning signs of vicarious traumatization and burnout and strategies for self-care will be discussed.
