Part II Scott & Amy - Growing from Vicarious Trauma & Learning Experiential Tele-therapy 2.0 CE

About this Event

Participants will learn basic teletherapy experiential tools while contributing to the self-care of self and others. In the midst of this pandemic, healthcare workers are enrolled as frontline emergency responders and all psychotherapists enrolled as trauma therapists. The collective trauma and loss upon society impacts patients and professionals alike. Professionals are even more susceptible to vicarious trauma and burnout due to the intensity of the work and the inability to separate one’s self from it. This workshop will help participants identify signs of vicarious trauma while engaging in a mutual aid process together. Strength-based sociometry and psychodrama processes will be employed to highlight each group member’s inherent ability to contribute to the well-being of each other. The concept of vicarious post-traumatic growth will be emphasized with a visioning and concretization of growth after this collective and vicarious trauma.
