This workshop is for individuals exposed to traumatic material and situations and the mental health professionals working with them. Team taught by a mental health professional and a law enforcement officer, this course offers professionals who are exposed to traumatic material and stressful situations at work and who may interact often with offenders (e.g., law enforcement officers, forensic analysts, prosecutors, etc.), the opportunity to learn about the causes and symptoms of the negative effects that may occur as a result of their duties and effective ways to mitigate them. Participants will learn about vicarious trauma, understand the potential psychological impacts from being exposed to child sexual exploitation during the course of an investigation, explore the signs and symptoms of stress reactions, identify resiliency tools, and learn how to incorporate others, such as family, colleagues and mental health professionals in the overall approach to wellness.
