Coaching in Crisis: Developing Resilience for Trauma Informed Practice

Instructor: Dr. Donielle Prince and Saundra Davis, nationally recognized coach and financial educator

May 30, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET

Working with people who are experiencing chronic stress can have an impact on those providing services, in just about any field. There are several terms for this impact: "burnout", "compassion fatigue", "vicarious trauma" and "secondary traumatic stress" have all been used to reference the signs that a professional is experiencing overwhelming stress in their work. It is critical to recognize the signs of stress and have a resilience plan in place so that this stress does not take such a toll that diminishes interest, motivation, and satisfaction in the work. This presentation will define the term "vicarious trauma", help participants recognize the signs, and share strategies for developing a personal and professional resilience plan that can enhance the capacity of financial coaches to serve their clients. 

1 CEUs for AFCPE®certified professionals. 1 CEUs for CFP® professionals. Approved for Coaching CEUs.
