Vicarious Trauma & Self-Care
About the Event
Please contact email@example.com if you have questions or need assistance.
Stress, burnout, and vicarious trauma among child and family service providers is a significant public health concern today. The impact is often diminished quality of life, depression, anxiety, immune disorders, addiction, and even suicidal ideation. Exposure to traumatic and uncertain world events, natural disasters, and epidemics, (such as the current stressor COVID-19) intensifies the problem, and leaves family welfare professionals more susceptible to negative consequences of stress, burnout, and vicarious trauma. This training will provide child and family service professionals with practical strategies and sustainable tools for self-care and vicarious trauma prevention during these challenging times—fostering resilience and a greater sense of personal and professional well-being.
