Online Submission, Paper presented at National Association of School Psychologists' Convention (Atlanta, GA, Mar 30, 2005)
In many instances, actual or threatened traumatic events trigger strong reactions for those individuals experiencing them, witnessing them, or learning about a loved one or friend who experienced an unexpected trauma. In addition, those who help traumatized persons can sometimes develop secondary traumatization. This workshop presenter constructed two inventories to help those individuals who have been traumatized and those who help them. He integrated his professional experiences with information from the literature to create the inventories that can be used as self-inventories or as inventories as part of an interview. The first inventory includes how a person is coping cognitively, emotionally, interpersonally, physically, behaviorally, and spiritually. The second involves how a traumatized person is using and might use practical, physical, psychological, interpersonal, and/or spiritual, coping resources. The purpose of these inventories is to assist the traumatized person and/or the mental health professional to introspect and to determine coping strengths and weaknesses. Six professional references are cited.
