Responding to Vicarious Trauma: Self-Care for Homelessness Service Providers

Free SAMHSA Webcast

 

Thursday, August 11, 2011  |  1:30 to 3 p.m. Eastern Time

We all need opportunities to step back, breathe, and think about how our work both challenges and enriches us on a daily basis. For people who work in the field of human services, experiences of intense fatigue and burnout are common. In addition to the stress of supporting others, managing paperwork, and meeting expectations, partnering with people who have experienced overwhelming and traumatic life events can be traumatizing for service providers.

This phenomenon, known as vicarious trauma or compassion fatigue, can have a significant impact on quality of life both at work and beyond. This webcast will explore the meaning of vicarious trauma, highlight risk factors and warning signs, and discuss strategies that individuals and organizations can use to support awareness, balance, and health.

Who Should Attend

Direct service providers, outreach workers, case managers, peer support specialists, project directors, supervisors, and team leaders can all benefit from this webcast.
