Treatment and prevention professionals often experience vicarious and secondary trauma that can lead to burnout and negatively impact services to clients. Participants will be given the opportunity to reflect upon how this reality affects their personal and professional lives and identify personal and organizational practices that can help mitigate the risks and improve services.
Participants will engage in a series of activities that are designed to help them assess the impact that vicarious and secondary trauma have on their personal and professional lives as well as identify and practice several self-care basics. Throughout the workshop, participants will be given the opportunity to participate in activities that are not only enjoyable but can become part of a self-care rhythm. This interactive workshop will offer education and reflection as participants navigate the demands of the helping profession.
