Information and Training Resources for Child Welfare Professionals

This Week

This webinar is hosted by National Indigenous Women's Resource Center

This timely and important webinar will define and look at burn out versus moral injury. The term “burnout” is a relatively new term, first coined in 1974 by Herbert Freudenberger, in his book, Burnout: The High Cost of High Achievement. He originally defined burnout as, “the extinction of motivation or incentive, especially where one's devotion to a cause or relationship fails to produce the desired results.” The term burn out, quite often does not accurately describe what’s going on with regard to domestic violence advocates. Burn out suggests a failure of resourcefulness and resilience. This webinar will help us understand the critical difference between burn out and moral injury. It will help us see how burn out in and of itself is a symptom of something larger. It will guide us in strengthening our resilience and more accurately understand the impact of the work we are doing on our well-being as advocates.

This webinar is hosted by Early Childhood Investigations

Trauma in young children is much more pervasive—and much more destructive—than we ever thought. The research on trauma has made it clear that children’s challenging behavior is not intentional, but is instead driven by fear and a protective strategy for coping with their experience. Working with children with challenging behavior and especially those who’ve experienced trauma is probably the most stressful aspect of the teaching profession which can result in secondary traumatic stress (STS), the symptoms of which can mimic those of post-traumatic stress disorder.

In this webinar you will:

Develop an understanding of trauma and how it affects behavior

Learn ways to support children who have been traumatized

Develop strategies to promote your own resilience
