Trauma STS and Reflective Supervision Part 2
March 18, 2021 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM (PST)
CACC, in collaboration with Westren Regional CAC, will be hosting a (2) part training series facilitated by Alkillen-Harvey, LCSW, and Marie Secrist, PhD., from Rady's Children's Hospital in San Diego.
Part 2, “Reflective Practice and Secondary Traumatic Stress in CACs and MDTs” . Part 2 will include a review of impact of trauma with additional focus on learning the skills to provide reflective supervision. The second is most appropriate for MDT members and CAC staff that do provide supervision and may want to incorporate additional reflective practices with their staff. This would also be appropriate for MDT facilitators who could incorporate reflective skills in their leadership of the MDT.
***In order to participate in Part 2, it is required that you attend Part 1.***
