Many active social workers have experienced second trauma. These social workers provide service to clients who have experiences various types of trauma themselves. This experiment assesses the effect that secondary trauma has had on social workers lives and relationships. The data examined here is compiled from a voluntary survey link, utilizing responses from Northern Kentucky University social work students and St. Joseph Orphanage Employees. The results are expected to show that social workers who have experienced secondary trauma have a negative influence or correlation to personal relationships and life.
