Event description

Description

Social workers, therapists, nurses and other helping professionals regularly encounter stories and symptoms of trauma in their roles. There is growing evidence that the impact of directly supporting others through experiences of trauma goes beyond burnout or fatigue. The toll of witnessing intense human experiences and emotions can contribute to a negative transformation of a helper’s own sense of safety, and of being competent and purposeful. This workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to examine their own experience and become aware of the signs of both vicarious trauma and vicarious growth. Participants will develop a personalized plan to repair negative effects as well as accelerate their positive helper resilience.

The day will include a lovely catered lunch.

The workshop is presented by Joddie Walker, MSc, RP. Joddie holds a Masters of Science in Forensic Psychology and is a registered psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. She has a private clinical practice where she specializes in treatment of grief and loss, stress, and anxiety issues for children, adolescents and adults. Additional areas of expertise include a sub-specialty with first responders and their families, and other professionals who are in the helping profession who may be experiencing PTSD or secondary traumatic stress. Joddie’s philosophy to treatment is the use of evidenced-based and trauma-informed practices in a strength-based, multi-disciplinary approach. She believes positive change happens when curiosity and desire for change sparks creative human interactions that unlock new opportunities. As a trainer, Joddie draws on her humour, and the strength and resilience she has witnessed in her work to illustrate course content in a dynamic manner.
