Coping with Vicarious Trauma, Building Resilience and the Ethics of Self-Care
Much of the research on vicarious trauma, or compassion fatigue, has focused on the effects and symptoms of vicarious traumatization on the clinician. What is missing is a focus on the preventative practices being used by effective therapists who engage in trauma specific therapies. Exemplary clinicians have demonstrated that preventative practices protected them from vicarious traumatization. This workshop would bring to the forefront that when dealing with trauma we need to remember and be reminded of that we, too, are humans and will be affected by the event. In addition, we would discuss evidence-based methods that promote prevention and build resilience, and review the ethics of self-care.
