Managing Vicarious Trauma through Trust and Compassion: Our Ethical Responsibility
Jennifer Wolfe-Hagstrom, LICSW
This workshop will cultivate space to hold participants with importance, care, and trust while teaching methods to honor self-care within our work in an effort to reduce burnout and compassion-fatigue. Not only is self-care necessary for the sake of the practitioner, it is also our ethical responsibility to ensure we are able to provide best care to our clients. Participants will be led through curriculum integrating clinical interventions related to increased self-care, self-trust, and self-compassion. Interventions include: mindfulness, strength-based/positive psychology, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, grounding techniques, group processing, and creative expression. This is a hands-on, experiential workshop where participants will be able to learn, practice, reflect, and leave with concrete tools to use in their ongoing work. Participants will be encouraged to trust themselves enough to know what they need and have the courage to give themselves what they need no matter what might get in the way.
