Vicarious Trauma (sometimes also called Compassion Fatigue), describes the phenomena generally associated with the “cost of caring for others”.
Vicarious trauma is the emotional residue of exposure that ‘helpers’ have from working with people as they are hearing their trauma stories and become witnesses to the pain, fear and terror that trauma survivors have endured.
There are many signs and symptoms to be aware of and many simple remedies to adapt in order to minimise the impact of your profession.
Designed for school teachers, frontline workers, medical and response staff, counsellors and other professionals.
This half day training will equip you to:
- Understand stress, burnout and vicarious trauma
- Recognise the signs
- Implement strategies to address both burnout and vicarious trauma.
