On Wednesday, August 14th at 1:00 PM EST, Safe Horizon will join NCADV to share insights on vicarious trauma. Vicarious Trauma (VT) occurs when we accumulate and carry the stories of trauma – including images, sounds, details –that we hear about from survivors, which then impact our bodies, our minds, and our worldview. Anyone who, in the course of their work that engages with or is responsible for trauma survivors, hears about/discusses stories of trauma, and learns details about client experiences will be impacted by VT throughout their career. During this webinar participants will learn about general strategies for managing Vicarious Trauma that include; self-care, reducing isolation and on the job strategies. All levels of staff in human services organizations will benefit from the practical applications for Vicarious Trauma intervention that will be discussed during this webinar.
