Provider Self-Care Toolkit


Provider Toolkit


Provider Self-Care Toolkit

This toolkit is for providers who work with those exposed to traumatic events, to help reduce the effects of job-related stress, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress. Working with trauma survivors is rewarding, yet such work can create challenges. Hearing trauma survivors' stories can be difficult and some providers may find they experience burnout or secondary traumatic stress as a result. In this toolkit you will find assessment tools, strategies, and resources to help you care for yourself while working with those who have experienced trauma or have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
For more in-depth information on the effects of working with trauma survivors, please see our free, online course offering continuing education credits: Provider Strategies for Coping with Burnout and Secondary Traumatic Stress.
