The Warren Coalition, in partnership with Northwestern Prevention Collaborative, will offer a free virtual course on Secondary Trauma: Recognizing the Signs, How to Help Yourself, and When to Step Away. The two-hour presentation will be offered twice on May 24, at 10 a.m. and again at 6 p.m.

Individuals who listen to firsthand traumatic experiences of others, or those who witness the after-effects of trauma, can be affected by “secondary trauma.” Following the exposure to others’ trauma, the individual can develop symptoms similar to post-traumatic stress disorder.

This training will explore who is most at-risk for secondary trauma, the signs, ways to help support those exposed, how organizations can help prevent secondary trauma, and when it is time to disengage.

Preregistration is required at Information: Christa Shifflett at
