Vicarious Trauma and You

May 23, 2016 @ 8:15 am - 12:00 pm

| $45

If you work with a high caseload of traumatized individuals, this workshop is for you. We know that trauma impacts the clients we serve, but how does witnessing, helping with or hearing about trauma day after day affect you personally and professionally? What is the impact on the organizations we work in? Come and find out what the “occupational hazards” are and find out what you can do to minimize the risk to yourself and your organization.

This workshop is suitable for social workers, mental health therapists, residential counselors, case managers, medical personnel, law enforcement, fire fighters, CPS workers, and foster parents; anyone who has had repeated exposure to trauma through work or volunteer activities. Administrative personnel at agencies who focus on trauma are also welcome.

Space is limited — sign up today! Download the registration form here:
