Managing Secondary Traumatic Stress Through a Skills Based Model:
This full-day training will provide a thorough discussion on the Components for Enhancing Career Experience and Reducing Trauma (CE-CERT) model. Developed by Dr. Brian Miller, CE-CERT is a skills-based approach to improving provider well-being and effectiveness in working with traumatized clients. Drawing from what is known about trauma impacts and treatment, CE-CERT posits that secondary traumatic stress is not developed in response to mere exposure to others’ trauma stories, but occurs when feeling overwhelmed or helpless. In contrast to self-care strategies that require the individual to engage in a restorative practice after-work, the CE-CERT model proposes micro-interventions done throughout the day. The five core components of CE-CERT: Experiential Engagement, Reducing Rumination, Conscious Narrative, Reducing Emotional Labor, and Parasympathetic Recovery, and the acquirable skills within each will be taught through both didactic and experiential activities.
This training will be held as part of the Oklahoma Child Abuse & Neglect Conference on April 15-17, 2024 with the CE-CERT Training taking place on April 15, 2023. This training will be held in-person at the Hilton Garden Inn in Edmond, OK.
