At the conclusion of the training, attendees will:
- Define secondary traumatic stress, including how it is similar to and/or different from related constructs.
- Identify symptoms of secondary traumatic stress and how to recognize them in oneself and others.
- Recognize risk and resilience factors associated with secondary traumatic stress.
