Mind-Body Bridging for Professional Self-Care: Preventing and Treating Secondary Trauma

In this workshop domestic violence professionals will learn a few of the basic evidence-based Mind-Body Bridging (MBB) skills and practices for professional self-care to prevent and treat secondary trauma. MBB skills provide space for personal safety, voice and choice, while empowering professionals to alleviate psychological distress, and to strengthen and increase psychological flexibility, enhance resilience, and improve productivity and well-being.
