A 3-hour training with Penny Sampson

PRESENTATION: We know that in our field we are presented with unique challenges not common in the general workplace/environment. We will look at these challenges and acknowledge the realities, risks and the impact of primary and secondary trauma, its impact on the brain and body, our personal lives and ability to achieve and maintain a life of balance, wellbeing and happiness. We will review the warning signs and effects of prolonged, chronic stress and explore systems we can put in place to mitigate the stress and trauma that are intrinsic in our work.
As a result of the training, participants will be able to:
- Define primary and secondary trauma;
- Describe reality and risks in our workplace;
- Discuss the impacts of our work on our body, brain and emotional health;
- Identify at least 3 warning signs of chronic and/or prolonged stress;
