Safeguarding Yourself - Recognising and Responding to Vicarious Trauma

This one-day interactive professional development training explores the nature of vicarious trauma (VT), contrasts it with burnout and compassion fatigue and supports you to stay healthy and safe in your work with people impacted by diverse trauma.  By participating in this professional development training, attendees will:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of trauma, its impacts, stress responses, survivor coping strategies and possibilities for recovery;
  • Define and delineate VT, its development, risk and protective factors, barriers to identifying it and distinguish VT from Burnout and Compassion Fatigue;
  • Evaluate the concepts of post traumatic growth and vicarious resilience;
  • Analyse the role of organisations, quality supervision and self-care in VT risk and protection;
  • Conduct a wellness assessment and take home tools to create a personal wellnes plan.

This training will be conducted at the Velg Training:  1/52 Jeffcott St. Wavell Heights.
