PRESENTATION:  It is understood that vicarious trauma is an occupational hazard that often leads to lack of job satisfaction, job productivity, and negative outcomes for both workers and agencies. Behavioral Health Professionals are at increased risk for vicarious trauma and yet the impact of exposures is often not recognized. In this session, participants will gain understanding of the symptoms and impacts of vicarious trauma.  Further participants will learn critical skills in prevention and self-care. The role and opportunities for agencies to prevent and respond will also be explored.  As a result of this training, participant will be able to:   

1.      Distinguish between burn-out, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma;

2.      Recognize personal and agency factors that place them at greater risk for compassion fatigue/vicarious trauma;

3.      Understand the impact on job performance and personal satisfaction;

4.      Practice opportunities to interrupt a stress response;

5.      Identify self-care opportunities; and

6.      Learn opportunities to safe-guard from the negative impact of vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue through changes in agency culture, systematic supports and supportive supervision.
