Critical Issues To Know as a Practitioner

Friday April 19, 2019

Newton, MA (Boston Area)

7 CEU/PDAs (NCCAOM, CA - pending)

INSTRUCTOR: Diana Fried, AWB Founding Director

HOURS: 9am-5pm

Every practitioner needs to know about secondary trauma, and how might it affect one's life and one's practice. 

This is a subject that is often NOT taught in our educational programs, and yet it is so critical for our long-term success in our work and for our long-term personal happiness.

Please join us for a teaching and personal exploration of this critically important topic.

In this workshop we will explore the following:

  • What is Secondary Trauma?
  • Risk factors and signs of Secondary Trauma
  • Managing one’s own story in the treatment room
  • Trauma-Informed acupuncture and working with crises
  • Burnout, Self-awareness and Building Resiliency 
  • Five Elements and Secondary Trauma
  • What is compassion fatigue and what to do about it?
  • Loss of motivation and too much care-giving
  • The silver lining of working with crisis and trauma - how to harness the gold 
  • In a safe and nourishing way, the workshop will explore our own need for healing on this topic
