Northridge, CA, June 12, 2012 --( The emotional cost of caring for people who have experienced trauma can have a profound impact on those who extend their hand. Sometimes therapists who work with traumatized patients experience symptoms that are similar to post-traumatic stress disorder. The unimaginable detail and rawness of emotion experienced second-hand can have a life changing impact on one's professional life and future decisions to offer assistance. It can also empower, embolden and provide a strong sense of value and esteem.

In Coming Home: Preventing & Treating Secondary Trauma, case studies are presented as well as Mr. Intveld’s personal experience from a two-day onsite intervention in Oklahoma City after the bombing of the federal building. You will learn preventative measures that help reduce the impact from Secondary Trauma. You will also learn the process that will lead to recovery.

Practical CE Seminars offers this important training online to MFTs, Psychologists, LCSWs, PCs, LPCs, CATCs, Counselors, and Addiction Counselors who will earn 3 continuing education credits upon completion. Practical CE Seminars is an approved CE provider by the APA, NBCC, NCC, LPC, NAADAC, BBS and ASWB. For more information, visit their website
