GACRS is offering a Monthly Virtual Adoption Support Group featuring a New Topic each month presented by a trained adoption clinician. Real Talk is a non-therapeutic conversational experience about issues relevant to adoptive families. It is not presented as a time of therapy; it is for informational purposes only.
Join L. Kathryn Smith, LCSW, RPT in conversation about Vicarious/Secondary Trauma.
- Vicarious trauma describes the changes we can go through as a result of repeatedly hearing about or caring for someone who has experienced trauma.
- What are we, as Foster and Adoptive Parents, doing to take care of ourselves?
- Let’s discuss our individual experiences and help each other find ways to work through vicarious/ secondary trauma we experience.
