Building Resiliency in Child Abuse Organizations New icon

1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU) will be offered for this training.

Victim service providers who work with abused children often emphasize the importance of building resiliency in these young victims. However, they sometimes overlook the need to develop resiliency in themselves. If providers are unable to cope with the difficult situations inherent in their work, they are susceptible to secondary traumatic stress or burnout. To maintain a healthy perspective, then, providers must learn how to build their own individual resiliency. But it is also the ethical responsibility of the organization to create an environment that supports and encourages this critical strength.

The goal of this blended-learning training is to identify the five individual elements of resiliency, and explore how they can be implemented in an organization through policies, supervisory techniques, and training.

This training is intended for victim service providers who work within an agency that is interested in and willing to implement policies, supervisory techniques, and training that support resiliency.

Please note: This training consists of two Webinars held 2 weeks apart, short independent study assignments, followed by a 1-day face-to-face training, concluding with a final Webinar held several weeks following the face-to-face training.
