FREE: Navigating Secondary Traumatization

Therapists and clinicians are always experiencing a secondary impact when working with clients who have experienced or are experiencing trauma, crisis, or challenge. A big statement, we know, but it’s true.

We can’t avoid being impacted and it has a lot to do with the brain’s mirror neuron system. When we’re in the midst of listening or playing through the trauma with the child, we’re tracking our client’s non-verbal cues. And as we’re tracking our client’s non-verbal cues, their non-verbal cues are giving us insight into what is happening within them. THIS puts us directly IN the experience with our clients. We’ll experience the fear together, the anxiety together, the sadness together, the overwhelm together – Whatever is going on, we’ll experience it together including the trauma.

That’s why we would love to have you join us for this FREE 1-hour webinar to help you navigate the secondary traumatization that can often come along with this profession that we love!



What: A 1-hour recorded webinar that will help you learn how to navigate secondary traumatization!

What You’ll Learn: In this recorded live webinar, come learn, reflect and discuss:  

  • How therapists/clinicians always experience a secondary impact when working with clients who have/are experiencing trauma, crisis, or challenge;
  • What happens when therapists/clinicians are impacted by the same trauma, crisis, or challenge that our clients are experiencing;
  • What happens when therapists’/clinicians’ own unresolved trauma comes into the playroom (guaranteed it happens more frequently than we give ourselves permission to be aware of); and
  • How to reconnect back to ourselves both outside the playroom and during those moments of activation in the therapy session!
