Program Description:
Participants will attend the production of Project Dawn by Karen Hartman at People’s Light in Malvern, PA. This special CEU/CLE event features a post-show presentation and discussion for participants.
The play, Project Dawn, focuses on the work of Project Dawn Court, a problem-solving court in Philadelphia designed for women with repeat prostitution offenses. The first of its kind in the country, Project Dawn Court is modeled on the nationally lauded Philadelphia Treatment Court with the goal to “connect nonviolent repeat offenders with therapeutic and re-entry services; make the community safer by reducing recidivism of a particular crime; and lessen the financial burden of taxpayers paying to keep minor offenders in jail.” The aim of the play is to show the work and structure of Project Dawn Court by highlighting the experiences of those who work in the court.
Through attendance at People’s Light’s world premiere of Project Dawn, participants will explore problem-solving court programs, such as Philadelphia’s Project Dawn Court—a court that was launched to help address the underlying issues that often lead women to be involved in sex trafficking or prostitution. The post show training and discussion will examine how experiencing trauma secondhand through the course of your work can have personal and professional implications. Presenters Frank Cervone, Executive Director of the Support Center for Child Advocates, and Meghan Johnson, the Project Manager for the Center for Excellence in Advocacy, will discuss the impact of exposure to trauma in their work with children who have been victims of abuse and neglect and will facilitate a discussion about secondary trauma and burnout as it relates to the Peoples’ Light production of Project Dawn. Presenters will discuss the ethics of self-care for individuals exposed to trauma at work and will provide professional preservation strategies to promote work-life balance and integrity.
Learning Objectives:
  • Identify ethical principles and values for professionals regarding self-care, competency, and integrity.
  • Define trauma exposure and related concepts of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and burn-out and discuss their impact on professional competency.
  • Identify supportive self-care and professional-preservation strategies to help prevent secondary traumatization and burnout.
Support Center for Child Advocates, Center for Excellence in Advocacy is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors to offer continuing education for social workers, marriage and family therapists and professional counselors. Support Center for Child Advocates, Center for Excellence in Advocacy maintains responsibility for the program(s).
