NHSA Directory of Professional Development Resources and Consultants. It is the mission of NHSA to coalesce, inspire and support the Head Start field as a leader in early childhood development and education. This directory provides NHSA members access to a number of high impact resources.
Ready4Volunteers is an on-line resource library that helps early childhood development practitioners prepare for effective volunteer engagement. It is the outgrowth of a vibrant Learning Community that adapted best practices in volunteer management to a variety of programs, including but not limited to Head Start, Early Head Start, Relief Nurseries, SMART, CASA, and Child Care Centers.
Our main goal in preparing this fact sheet is to provide a concise overview of secondary
traumatic stress and its potential impact on child-serving professionals. We also outline
options for assessment, prevention, and interventions relevant to secondary stress, and
describe the elements necessary for transforming child-serving organizations and agencies
into systems that also support worker resiliency.
