Secondary Trauma: What's Happening to Child Welfare Workers?

A resource recommended by the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute.

A teleconference last month by the New York City Administration for Children’s Services, in partnership with Mt. Sinai School of Medicine and other partners, explored the effects of secondary trauma among child welfare staff because of the nature of their clients’ experiences.

“Secondary Trauma: Building Resilience among Child Welfare Staff” is now archived and available from the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections. The teleconference also includes a review of an intervention designed to reduce secondary trauma and promote resilience.
