Looking Through the Invisible Borders: A Cross Cultural Response to Trauma Survivors

ID: 1328

This workshop's scope utilizes a cross cultural perspective in examining, exploring and identifying appropriate clinical strategies in trauma response. Sexual violence is endemic amongst all races, cultures and ethnicities nationally and internationally. Culture, context and identity are inherently woven within a trauma survivors experience as it is within a professional responding to the trauma survivor. Through this workshop we will attempt to understand the trauma experience cross culturally and the use of the professional's sense of self and identity in strategizing appropriate response. This workshop is offered in collaboration with NJ CASA. 5 NJ DVS credits: Intervention Skills

Mental Health and Violence Against Women

ID: 1306

Research has shown that survivors of violence against women have a greater risk of experiencing a myriad of mental health issues and are more likely to experience depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, to abuse alcohol and drugs, and to contemplate suicide as a result of their experiences, causing many survivors to seek mental health and other supportive services. This fundamental workshop provides an overview of the common mental health issues that many survivors of violence may face. Additionally, information on how to prevent "screening out" survivors from support, shelter or clinical services based on previous misdiagnosis will be discussed, as well as on introduction to some of the current effective treatment interventions that survivors may encounter while engaged in clinical services.

Vicarious Traumatization: Sometimes the Cost of Caring

ID: 5879

As professionals working with trauma, we sit with and vicariously live through--watching, listening, feeling another's plight. The empathic engagement with those who have experienced trauma, be it, abuse, neglect, domestic violence, death, war, or any traumatic event such as 9/11, can produce enormous strain on the clinician psychological, physical and spiritual well-being. Our greatest gift of trying to help those impacted by trauma also becomes our greatest liability. "Vicarious traumatization" (McCann & Perlman, 1990) also known as "compassion fatigue" (Figley, 1995), is a term used to describe the cumulative impact on the lives of helping professionals who work with clients who have or are experiencing trauma. The training day will be divided into two parts. The first part of the workshop will be didactic, explaining the concept of vicarious traumatization, exploring the different ways vicarious traumatization can impact professionals, and reviewing various strategies to try to minimize the impact. The second part of the workshop is experiential. With structured exercises, participants will be given the opportunity to share the impact of their work with trauma. The workshop will emphasize self-care strategies.
