JULY 19, 2019: ADDRESSING SECONDARY TRAUMA IN TRIBAL COURT STAFF
Secondary Trauma results in professionals who work with those who have experienced trauma. Tribal court and tribal social service professionals spend their days working with and providing support to clients who have experienced trauma. This secondary trauma can result in burnout among staff. It is important for Tribal Court staff to engage in practices to address their secondary trauma in order to effectively serve the children and families in their courts. This session will explore secondary trauma and provide participants with practical culturally specific tools to help them deal with the secondary trauma.
