HHS 474 - Secondary Trauma and Self-Care


Secondary trauma is prevalent among professionals working in particular practice settings and with trauma survivors. A commitment to professional self-care and a repertoire of self-care strategies are essential to preventing and addressing secondary trauma as well as compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burn-out. Self-care also supports professional competence as well as the longevity and integrity of individual professionals and professions as a whole. Effective self-care is supported by self-awareness; an understanding of coping and human resilience as well as the theoretical foundations of self-care strategies; and application of self-care across practice settings and system levels.  Course Codes: B. Prerequisite: Introductory level Psychology or Sociology class. Cross-listed with HHS*574.
