The Resilience Alliance: Promoting Resilience and Reducing Secondary Trauma Among Welfare Staff - Participant Handbook

Partner-In Resource

Resource Description

Is designed to mitigate secondary trauma symptoms experienced by child welfare staff, and secondary trauma’s impact on unit and agency functioning. This manual, developed by the ACS-NYU Children’s Trauma Institute in New York City, provides information and tools to help child welfare staff identify, better understand, and address the ways child welfare work affects them personally and professionally. The intervention has a strong focus on how secondary trauma influences organizational cohesion and functioning, which requires the participation of all levels of staff, including leadership.
