Description

OneSky Community Resources and Pathways Addictions Resource Centre is excited to offer Vikki Reynolds Ph.D., RCC. Resisting Vicarious Trauma with Justice-Doing

In this experiential workshop, Vikki offers an alternative approach to the notion of vicarious trauma and worker burnout.

Folks working with people struggling with addiction, poverty, violence and oppression are often told that they will “burn out”, and that is the connection to the client’s pain that ‘traumatizes’ them. Contrary to this is a story of sustainability— how our collective work sustains us, nourishes our hope, invites us to honour the resistance and strength that we witness in the people who we work alongside, and allows us to work congruently with our ethics.

This experiential workshop will address our collective ethics and what is at the heart of our work, and practices of collective care as opposed to self-care. Workers will be invited to begin to build their own “Solidarity Team”; examining who stands alongside them, what ideas and practices sustain them, and how they might act to help each other when burnout attacks.

Where: Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. 273 Power St. Penticton B.C.

When: May 24, 2019

Time: 9:00AM - 12:00PM
