Vicarious Trauma – Strategies for Supporting Resilience

Trainer: Vicki Enns, MMFT, RMFT

Helping others with trauma can have a particular effect on helpers. There is growing evidence that the impact goes beyond burnout or fatigue.  The toll of witnessing intense human experiences and emotions can contribute to a negative transformation of a helper’s own sense of being safe, and of being competent and purposeful.  This webinar gives an overview of the process of vicarious impact that can either go toward trauma or toward growth. Steps for healing vicarious trauma and promoting resilience will be described. Learning Objectives At the end of this webinar participants should be able to: • Describe the process of vicarious impact on a helper from working with others’ trauma. • Distinguish between the concepts of fatigue, secondary stress, vicarious trauma and vicarious resilience. • List four steps for healing and transforming vicarious impact into resilience.
