Vicarious trauma and self-care WebinarVIEW ALL EVENTS
Vicarious trauma, sometimes known as compassion fatigue, is an emotional reaction which occurs through indirect exposure to someone else’s traumatic experience, and its symptoms mimic those of post-traumatic stress disorder. For example, foster carers supporting children in their care through trauma, or social workers working with children in cases of abuse and neglect.
This training will explain the causes and effects of vicarious trauma and offer ways in which to self-protect and care in order to minimise and prevent the risk of being impacted.
