Attendee 1 Information
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.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the process of vicarious impact on a helper from working with others’ trauma
  • Distinguish between the concepts of fatigue, secondary stress, vicarious trauma, and vicarious resilience
  • List four steps for healing and transforming vicarious impact into resilience

*Please allow only the registered individual(s) to view webinar materials

Target Audience

This is an introductory-intermediate level webinar intended for anyone interested in learning more about this topic.
