Online Staying Inside the Window of Tolerance: An Advanced Training on Secondary Traumatic Stress and Resiliency

This free, self-paced online training is being offered by the University of Kentucky Center on Trauma and Children through the Secondary Traumatic Stress Innovations and Solutions Center.  We will be using the Window of Tolerance framework to discuss regulation, dysregulation, and as a frame for reviewing coping strategies in the face of secondary traumatic stress.

Skills for Psychological Recovery

Skills for Psychological Recovery (SPR) is an evidence-informed modular intervention that aims to help survivors gain skills to manage distress and cope with post-disaster stress and adversity. It is based on an understanding that disaster survivors will experience a broad range of reactions (physical, psychological, behavioral, spiritual) over differing periods of time. SPR is not formal mental health treatment, but rather a secondary prevention model that utilizes skills-building components that have been found helpful in a variety of post-trauma situations. Although some individuals will need referral for treatment after an event, research suggests that a skills-building approach is more effective than supportive counseling for most.

Staying Inside the Window of Tolerance: An Advanced Training on STS and Resilience

In this training, we will be exploring how working in a secondary trauma-exposed environment is impacting you. And, we will be reviewing strategies to mitigate those impacts. We will be using the Window of Tolerance (WOT) framework to discuss regulation, dysregulation, and as a frame for reviewing coping strategies in the face of STS. Come learn strategies to help you self-monitor and stay in your window of tolerance. Also, explore how your organization can play an important role in mitigating the effects of trauma exposure.

Secondary Traumatic Stress Core Competencies in Trauma-Informed Supervision

Quality supervision is an important support that organizations can provide to staff members at risk of developing STS. The STS-Informed Supervisory Competencies were developed to guide supervisors in providing effective STS supervision. The University of Kentucky's STS Innovations and Solutions Center has developed this training to assist supervisors in developing these competencies to effectively address secondary traumatic stress.
