Wellness for Professionals

On March 21, 2017, TI Task Force Core Strategic Planning Committee Member Nkem Ndefo and TI Task Force Advisor Elizabeth Eastlund presented on a panel at an event hosted by the USC Suzanne Dworak Peck School of Social Work – Wellness for Professionals: Taking Care while Giving Care.

The event began with a screening of the film Portraits of Professional CAREgivers: Their Passion, Their Pain, and was followed by a panel discussion that focused on secondary trauma, wellness, self-care, and “we-care.”

We’re happy to share the video recording of the panel discussion below, for those of you who weren’t able to make it to this incredible event.
