About the Webinar:
This webinar will address the impact of traumatic stress on educators. The webinar is designed to teach educators and other school staff about signs and symptoms of burnout, compassion fatigue, and secondary traumatic stress (STS). It will review risk factors for STS and provide educators with strategies to prevent or mitigate STS. Finally, the webinar will address system wide approaches to address STS including ways that teachers can help other teachers reach out when they recognize that a colleague may be exhibiting signs of STS.
