This workshop will focus on issues related vicarious and secondary trauma that impact professionals who work with vulnerable populations and populations with histories of child maltreatment, trauma, and complex trauma. The class will also address those clinicians who work regularly with clients with intense pain, grief, and loss. Definitions and differences between burn out, countertransference (how our personal experiences may interfere with our work), compassion fatigue, and secondary trauma will be reviewed. Signs and symptoms of secondary trauma, as well as indications that it is interfering in one’s work or personal life, will be discussed. A self-assessment tool(s) will be given. Specific triggers that could activate secondary trauma will also be presented. The workshop will conclude with strategies for restorative work, self-care, and prevention. There will be an opportunity for clinicians to bring examples of their own experiences and how this is currently (or in the past) being managed during the Q and A time slot.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:
