Current Practices

CWLA recently reached out to 32 states about the importance of addressing secondary trauma among their workers.
  • Most states reported that they have no protocol to address this issue, and are only providing debriefings after major crisis events and/or offering Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs).

  • Some states reported that they provide one-time trainings to caseworkers on what secondary trauma is, how to recognize it, and prevention tools for individuals to use.

  • Few states reported a multileveled systems change approach that included numerous supervisory and caseworker trainings, ongoing support groups, debriefings after major crisis events, and individual supports such as EAPs and one-on-one supervisory support.
