Preventing Burnout: Working with Vicarious Trauma

Monday, October 10
8:30 am (registration begins) – 4:30 pm

Social Workers and others in the helping professions will be exposed to vicarious trauma and are at risk of experiencing institutional trauma, secondary traumatic stress (STS), and burn-out. These conditions often result in diminished effectiveness in work as well as a significant disruption of the person’s social, family and spiritual life. This workshop will explore several antidotes to the development of these conditions, including self-care strategies, doing shadow work, increased awareness of sparkling developments and hidden presences, therapeutic writing, community rituals, and finding the sweetness in the darkness. A significant amount of time will be devoted to experiential exercises where participants can explore some of these methods and develop a preventative plan for themselves.
