Working with people who have experienced trauma and injustice, can be complex for helping professionals. The chronic day-to-day exposure to clients and the distress they experience may become emotionally taxing on helping professionals. Such exposure can result in the experience of a condition known as vicarious trauma and/or compassion fatigue. Ultimately, if not addressed properly helping professionals can find themselves in a state of professional burnout. This workshop will address the signs and symptoms of vicarious trauma and/or compassion fatigue. We will also discuss ways that professionals can begin to practice self-care as a preventive tool.
