Vicarious Trauma: Strategies for Supporting Resilience
2020-09-10 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Helpers regularly encounter stories and symptoms of trauma in their roles. There is growing evidence that the impact of directly supporting others through experiences of trauma goes beyond burnout or fatigue. The toll of witnessing intense human experiences and emotions can contribute to a negative transformation of a helper’s own sense of safety, and of being competent and purposeful. This webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to examine their own experiences and become aware of the signs of both vicarious trauma and vicarious growth.
