Trauma Informed Caregiving: Develop Strategies to Enhance Professional Quality of Life (Session 5)

Early educators are at risk of experiencing the toxic stress that comes with working with children and families impacted by trauma. The YMCA CRS Foster Child Care Bridge Program is providing training opportunities to assist providers in fostering a greater understanding of trauma-informed care and gain the knowledge necessary to combat burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue. Participants will have the opportunity to explore areas of challenge and success concerning self- care and develop a plan that maximizes the provider’s ability to stay emotionally balanced and motivated to deliver the highest level of service possible. Session 5: Develop Strategies to Enhance Professional Quality of Life. Do you remember why you love working with children? As Care Providers we have to remember what motivated us and find ways to preserve our passion.  As a Helping Professional there comes negative and positive engagements. Being resilient allows you to recover quickly from challenges and become stronger while identifying your support systems and personal resources. This will help you to stay calm and regulated when challenges arise when caring for children with traumatic experiences. In this second module, take what you’ve learned about compassion fatigue and develop strategies that will increase your resilience and ability to better care for yourself and the children in your program.  For optimum benefit we recommended you attend this training series in session order. Please register for each training separately.
