This dynamic and experiential training will demystify vicarious trauma. What exactly is vicarious trauma and, how do you know if you, your supervisee, or your organization is experiencing it? Participants will discuss the four types of “caring traumas” and learn how to identify and address the signs and symptoms of each. Finally, we will learn about ways to address trauma and promote individual and organizational self-care.
