VICARIOUS TRAUMA

Trauma Informed Care

 

 

 

 

 

Experiencing vicarious trauma is a common reaction when consistently exposed to the trauma of others. Offering support to individuals who have undergone traumatic experiences, and being immersed in their stories through hearing, seeing, and learning, can gradually affect various aspects of your personal life.

The children and families we frequently work with have often faced profoundly challenging and distressing situations. These experiences, far from being deemed 'normal,' can have a lasting impact on your personal life, health, and overall functioning when encountered or witnessed repeatedly.

This training program delves into the nature, dynamics, and risks of vicarious trauma, aiming to equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to recognize early signs of stress outcomes. Informed by current research, it provides a comprehensive exploration of organisational and personal strategies to address the risks of vicarious trauma and its consequences.

The training also seeks to foster opportunities for post-traumatic growth and vicarious resilience.

Reviews

  • “This training made me sit back and re-evaluate my responses to trauma, and gave me a better understanding of how trauma impacts me personally” Deborah D

  • “I work with vulnerable people all day and never really understood how their trauma affects me personally.  I also didn’t realise there were so many different types of traumas and how each of them are uniquely different.  Great training and I would highly recommend to others working with vulnerable families”. Gav J

  • “Awesome training – Everyone should do this if they work children who have been affected by trauma”. Immy B
