Abstract

Relationships were examined between secondary stress symptoms, coping styles, and compassion satisfaction among staff working with child and adolescent residents in treatment. Results indicated male participants and emotional-based coping styles positively correlated with secondary traumatic stress reactions. Implications for future research and suggestions for training programs and clinical practice are offered.
