Compassion Fatigue & Trauma-Informed Webinar Series

DECEMBER 10 & 15, 2020


The on-going COVID-19 pandemic has taken an immense toll on school-based health centers and entire school communities, which includes behavioral health provider organizations, educators, staff, students and families.

While clinicians and staff are particularly at risk for compassion fatigue, they are also in a unique position to enhance resilience among themselves and within their school communities during the pandemic by using trauma-informed care approaches.

Join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions in partnership with the School-based Health Alliance and the Weitzman Institute, for a two-part webinar series exploring trauma-informed care concepts and strategies first for providers and professionals, then among students and families within school communities.
