Vicarious Trauma Workshop
In response to provider requests, First 5 Butte County is brining Laura van Dernoot Lipsky to Chico on February 25, 2013. Laura van Dernoot Lipsky, founder and director of the Trauma Stewardship Institute and author of Trauma Stewardship: An Everyday Guide to Caring for Self While Caring for Others, has worked directly with trauma survivors for 25 years. Her talks offer a compelling mix of personal insight and cutting-edge research. Filled with stories, quotes (by wise men and women from Bob Marley to Wangari Maathai), and countless New Yorker cartoons, they have been widely praised as both engaging and effective.
If you work with Butte County families with children ages 0-5 years, please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Seating is limited, so register early.
