Trauma Stories and the Impact on Teachers 

Online, On-Demand Workshop

The role of a teacher is one filled with daily demands and expectations.

It is also, however, one of great responsibility and influence as the potential to shape and impact a young life in a positive way is a significant position. This means ensuring your own health and wellbeing is maintained and supported is crucial. Trauma stories, compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatization may be parts of a teacher’s role that aren’t spoken about or addressed very often, but that deserve attention to assist you in understanding, navigating, and overcoming these experiences. 

Join us as we explore the effect of hearing traumatic accounts from the children you teach, the impact that it may have on your health and wellbeing, the warning signs to keep in mind, and finally guide you to implementing ways to address and buffer the impact.

In this training, you will learn about:

  • The risk of secondary trauma and the definition of compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatization.
  • Mandated reporting and personal concerns.
  • The trauma impact of secondary trauma.
