Event description

Description

"Secondary trauma is a hazard of working with other people’s trauma, vicarious trauma is what can happen if we don’t have the necessary tools to do the job safely, and vicarious posttraumatic growth is what can happen if we do” ... Christine Toft

This Training day will be used to explore a range of factors that can lead to vicarious traumatisation, ‘burn out’, and the risk of developing Secondary Traumatic Stress (STS). It will be aimed at a wide variety of caring professionals such as psychotherapist, counsellors, psychologists and social workers.

It will identify the signs and symptoms of burn- out and secondary traumatic stress and how these can be managed both individually and by organisations to ensure staff well-being.

The focus will be on how practitioners can ensure self-care, and how supervisors and managers can ensure minimising risks to staff. Through several assessment measures and experiential exercises practitioners will have an opportunity to identity their own vulnerability to burn-out and explore strategies to manage the impact of working with clients so that they can continue to remain present, engaged and vital in their work.
