Vicarious Trauma Workshop – 18 October

18 October 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$200

Event Navigation

    This workshop is for anyone working / supporting in the human services sector whose clients have experiences of traumatic life events, including physical, emotional, psychological abuse.

    Participation Price: $200

    Learning detailed accounts of these experiences and / or supporting clients through them can be stressful and distressing for the support worker as a natural part of connecting and empathising.  An accumulation of this stress can be damaging and result in burnout among other consequences, if not addressed. 

    The workshop will cover a range of topics including:

    • Defining vicarious trauma and identifying signs and symptoms
    • Psychoeducation about stress and burnout and the warning signs
    • Treatment and self-management of vicarious trauma and how to support colleagues

    This will be a highly interactive workshop of about 15 participants and will include practical exercises including individual wellness and self-check exercises.

    Facilitator: Michaela Killips of Mullumbimby Psychology, is a registered psychologist (AHPRA) and training consultant with a Master of Health Science, Behavioural Science from the University of Sydney and a Cert. IV in Assessment and Workplace Training. Michaela is passionate about facilitating adaptive change at both individual and organisational levels. She also provides individual professional coaching, mentoring, debriefing and counselling, utilising a wide range of evidence based therapeutic techniques.
