Community Journal Club

The Secondary Traumatic Stress (STSD) or Compassion Fatigue that may be experienced working with trauma, abuse or neglect populations consistently speaks to a need for a supportive peer network. TITAN is working to help meet this need for our local community through a biannual journal group. The goal of this group is to review new research and practice information and to promote the continued development of supportive professional relationships.

This group is open to anyone working with trauma, abuse or neglect populations. CEUs are offered for attending. If you would like to be notified when the next meeting date is set, or if you would like more information about this event, please contact Kathleen Strunk, RN, CNS via email at
