Event description

Description

Polyvictimization refers to having experienced multiple victimizations such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, bullying, and exposure to family violence. The definition emphasizes experiencing different kinds of victimization, rather than multiple episodes of the same kind of victimization.

Social workers need to have a deeper understanding of how complex trauma is often the result of polyvictimization which often begins in childhood but can present in adults as health and mental health issues. This workshop will provide:

  • An introduction to the concepts of polyvictimization, complex trauma, and other short and long term impacts of polyvictimization;
  • Best practices for working effectively with polyvictims including the science of hope; and
  • And overview of how multiple victimizations often create ethical dilemmas for professionals around self-efficacy, self-harm, informed consent, and dual relationships.

An evidence-based case study will be used as a teaching tool during the workshop. As this content can be challenging to process, the last 30 minutes of the workshop will be a guided self-care practice for participants.

**CONTACT HOURS: 3 contact hours of CEU credit are available
