Description: 

Workshop Description: This workshop will define vicarious trauma and distinguish it from ideas of a job's "normal wear and tear." This training provides participants the opportunity to reflect on their current work experiences and learn preventative strategies for dealing with vicarious trauma. When considering environmental factors, levels of communication within organizations and personal methods of dealing with vicarious trauma, we can paint a better picture of creating healthy support and strategies for maintaining emotional well-being. This training is available to mental health professionals.
