Event — Working with Children: Vicarious Trauma and Self-Care in the Time of COVID


During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are exposed to intense stressors and traumatic experiences on a daily basis. Professionals face not only trauma exposure from the families and children they work with, but also their own uncertainties and hardships caused by the pandemic.

Join us for a panel discussion on managing vicarious trauma and taking moments for your own mental well-being while working in child welfare. Our panelists will reflect on their experiences, offer solutions to cope with second-hand trauma, and create a space for individuals to remember the importance of their personal well-being.

Shirley Gatenio Gabel, Ph.D., Mary Ann Quaranta Chair for Social Justice for Children, will moderate.
