WHAT: Terms like “trauma” and “self-care” have become ubiquitous in our field and in the broader culture. In this training, we will dive into the deeper meaning of these buzzwords and explore the impact of vicarious trauma on those working in sexual violence response and prevention every day. We will discuss how we can truly care for ourselves while also being routinely exposed to secondhand trauma. Topics will include: spotting signs of vicarious trauma and burnout, personal vs. professional self-care, and proactive practices. Tools will be provided to help monitor stress and resources to assist in your own self-care journey.
