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.
