Advocate trauma is a public health problem – not an individual defect. We know that community problems require community solutions. For this reason, WOW Self Care School works at every level of the spectrum of prevention to promote self-care and to prevent advocate trauma.
We provide holistic support services for individual helping professionals, educate service providers and community leaders, build individual and organizational resilience, and advocate for change to the policies, systems, and norms that keep helping professionals from accessing the help the need.
Together, we are building a movement of radical self-compassion for helping professionals everywhere.
