Working as an advocate or treatment service provider to
survivors of trauma often involves listening to survivors' accounts of
violence. A major challenge for individuals and organizations providing trauma services is the cumulative effect of repeatedly bearing witness to the pain, terror, and loss of trauma survivors. This webinar will provide an overview of secondary/vicarious trauma including the signs and symptoms. In addition, potential interventions on the both the and individual and organizational level will be discussed and reviewed. This webinar is intended for advocates and anyone providing direct services to survivors, as well as their supervisors and people making policy decisions at these organizations.
