This training, informed by current research, provides participants with the knowledge, skills, and tools to better recognise the early signs of VT and intervene accordingly. It equips you with a range of organisational, interpersonal and personal strategies to minimise the risks of VT and its impacts and foster possibilities for post-traumatic growth and vicarious resilience. You will also be supported to develop your own wellness assessment and plan to enhance your professional resilience.

Learning outcomes

By participating in this professional development training, attendees will:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of trauma and its impacts, stress response, survivor coping strategies and possibilities for recovery

  • Evaluate the concepts of post traumatic growth and vicarious resilience
  • Analyse the role of organisations, quality supervision and self-care in VT risk and protection
