February Webinar

Creating an Innovative Organization that Develops and Sustains Resilient Treaters


Vicarious traumatization, secondary trauma, compassion fatigue and burnout are all realities for the foster care work force. Solutions to sustaining hope are seen as the responsibility of the individual, and recommendations promote self-care. Research suggests that self-care is not the most powerful driver of workplace satisfaction. This workshop delineates steps organizations can take to help their staff thrive. Topics include supervision, teams, promoting social connections, choice in the workplace, increasing stamina and resilience, facilitating vicarious transformation and sustaining through celebration.
FFTA members will receive an invitation to register for this webinar. 

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to differentiate between multiple sources of workplace stress.
2. Participants will be able to list five areas of workplace experience that contribute to job satisfaction.
3. Participants will develop tools to be utilized at their own agencies to decrease staff stress and to increase worker personal growth.
