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 workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to examine their own experiences and become aware of the signs of both vicarious trauma and vicarious growth. Participants will have the opportunity to develop a personalized plan to repair negative effects as well as accelerate their resilience.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the process of vicarious impact on a helper from working with trauma
  • Distinguish between the concepts of secondary stress, vicarious trauma, and vicarious resilience
  • Identify key vulnerabilities and strengths in one’s own practice as a helper
  • List strategies for the transformation of vicarious impact into resilience

Method of Delivery

Presentation, video, case study exercises, personal reflection, delivered electronically.
