Whether you are an Ambassador or not, you have worked hard to educate yourself, you’ve learned hard truths about the violence and perversion of child sex trafficking, and you help educate others. You’ve had to answer the hard questions, and you may even be involved at the grassroots of a victim’s journey to freedom. What happens when you find your compassion is eroded? What if your worldview shifts and you can’t see the good in humanity anymore? What if you feel like “What’s the use? Am I making a difference anyway?” This workshop gives you checklist of symptoms for compassion fatigue, secondary trauma and ways to identify your personal vulnerability. You will receive solutions for resiliency and positive ways to be able to continue in the fight sex trafficking. To request a copy of the transcript, please contact training@sharedhope.org.
