Reclaiming Your Why is a program of great power, treating vicarious trauma at its root. This training helps normalize and attenuate secondary trauma and reduce the shame often engendered by these stress reactions, while creating valuable mental health tools, increasing care-providers’ ability to work from a place of compassion, enabling them to receive the full measure of self-esteem available from their work, and gaining resiliency regardless of the nature of their organization.
