Event description
A course for those working with service users who have mild to severe mental health problems or who may be survivors of any kind of trauma.

About this event

This online training is made up of two 2¼ hour sessions with a 15-minute break. This training will be from 14:15 to 16:30pm each day.

Vicarious trauma is the emotional residue of bearing witness to the pain, fear, and terror that trauma survivors have endure. Vicarious trauma may worsen following repeated exposure; exacerbated by presenting a calm façade whilst hearing repeatedly about violence. Sometimes it is known as secondary trauma. Vicarious trauma is not the same as “burnout”, which is job-related chronic stress that has built up over time.

Aims

To explore the participants understanding of vicarious trauma, its causes, effects and the ways for individuals and organisations to prevent it from happening.

  • To explore the common responses when listening to explicit accounts of human suffering or trauma
  • To explore all of the ways that the symptoms of vicarious trauma present themselves
  • To highlight both the risk and the protective factors
  • To understand the opportunities that individuals and organisations can prevent Vicarious Trauma
  • To reflect on the reasons why do we do this work
  • To explore peer debriefing
  • To explore and emphasise self-care
