Secondary Traumatic Stress - A Fact Sheet for Child-Serving Professionals

A resource from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network

Our main goal in preparing this fact sheet is to provide a concise overview of secondary traumatic stress and its potential impact on child-serving professionals. We also outline options for assessment, prevention, and interventions relevant to secondary stress, and describe the elements necessary for transforming child-serving organizations and agencies into systems that also support worker resiliency.
