Vicarious Trauma - Having a Healthy Workplace

Vicarious Trauma - Having a Healthy Workplace

9.png

Overview

The cumulative effects of handling emotional and distressing contacts can negatively impact on a person's social behaviours, emotional wellbeing, physical health, and cognitive reasoning. If unaddressed, vicarious trauma (VT) could not only harm the service worker but can also have serious implications for your service users. Based on recent research, this insightful and practical course will explore the implications of VT research within helpline services, helping you to establish and review strategies and procedures to effectively manage and address the personal and professional risks of VT.

Who is it for?

Anyone who hears trauma stories or who responds to service users in heightened emotional states as part of their work, plus the team leads and managers who support them.
