Description

Working in a youth justice profession can be a very rewarding career, yet working with survivors of trauma can create a state of tension and preoccupation of the trauma experiences described by clients in professionals often referred to as the “cost of caring”. This one-day foundational training workshop will review the early signs and symptoms of vicarious trauma and/or compassion fatigue. The workshop will discuss the impact of vicarious trauma on the erosion of professional boundaries and impact on the provision of trauma-informed care of clients. Participants will learn skills to develop therapeutic presence; best practice and evidence-based approaches for preventing and responding to vicarious trauma in an attachment informed manner.

The workshop will:

  • review personal and social techniques and strategies to increase resilience
  • identify and recognize organizational supports for professional effectiveness
  • identify resources to reduce compassion fatigue and increase resilience
  • assist participants to create a professional and personal care plan to minimize the emotional effects of working with trauma survivors
