Workplace Resilience for Secondary Trauma
The Learning Center at Red Willow

This program is aimed at employees and volunteers who work with trauma on a daily basis through their jobs  This group includes: mental health providers, paraprofessionals in human services, law enforcement, firefighters, and medical personnel.

Our goal is to provide tools that can be used in the moment, both on the job and on an on-going basis off the job, to increase the ability to autoregulate emotion and to decrease physiological hyperarousal.  These are two aspects of trauma resiliency.  These proven tools are borrowed from many different areas in psychotherapy, gathered into a tool chest, and taught over a specific amount of time to allow participants to experience and practice them, and to come back with questions.  All of the tools require consistent practice to be of optimal use in a time of crisis, which is why practice is so important.

We suggest 2-hour sessions weekly for an 8-week period to help foster the kind of practice that will have a lasting impact on staff.  We tailor the training to best meet your organization's specific concerns as well as scheduling needs.  We are available to present this training on-site at your workplace and can work with varying group sizes.

Lead instructors: Christine Lustik, Ph.D. and Kathy Mangan, M.S.
