About the event
Event price: By donation
As a result of our empathic engagement with survivors of various traumas; counsellors, psychotherapists and trainees are professionally susceptible to experiencing Vicarious Traumatisation.
This is a largely neglected reality of our profession, where ever-increasing emotional demands are placed on clinicians with increasing caseloads of traumatised clients and diminishing levels of support. Now, more than ever, we need to be clear about how to recognise the signs and symptoms of Vicarious Trauma, how we can protect ourselves and what we can do when it inevitably arises in ourselves and/or our colleagues.
