Caring for the Case Manager: Understanding Vicarious Trauma and its Impacts

December 5, 2018  10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Target Audience:  Program staff and supervisors from DYCD-funded programs that provide case management services

 

Workshop Description:

The act of caring is powerful and healing, and many of us in the helping professions see our work as a calling and not just a job.  Indeed, there is nothing more important than building safe and healthy relationships with youth and families in our communities, especially when it is estimated that at least half of our nation’s children (and 70% of adults) have experienced traumatic events or conditions such as abuse, violence, and poverty.  Vicarious trauma, also known as compassion fatigue or secondary traumatic stress, is what happens when human beings come in contact with survivors of trauma, and it’s an on-the-job hazard for all helping professionals.  How can we manage the impact of vicarious trauma in our work and our lives?  This interactive workshop is an opportunity for “you-time”—please join us to connect with supportive colleagues and add to your self-care toolbox.  You will leave refreshed and inspired so that you can be there for others as well as yourself!

 

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to...

  • Describe the difference between primary trauma and vicarious trauma, and why it’s important to have coping strategies for both
  • Know what the acronym “A.C.E.S.” stands for, and how to access resources in the “ACES Too High” movement
  • Make a plan to incorporate at least one new self-care strategy 

Facilitated by Elizabeth Speck, Ph.D., Principal of Mind Open Learning Strategies
