    Do you worry about burn out, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma?
    This one-day interactive professional development workshop explores the nature of vicarious trauma (VT), contrasts it with burnout and compassion fatigue, and supports you to stay healthy and safe in your work with people impacted by diverse traumas.

    By participating in this professional development training opportunity, attendees will:
    Demonstrate knowledge of trauma, its impacts, stress response, survivor coping strategies and possibilities for recovery.
    Define and describe VT, its development, risk and protective factors, barriers to identifying it and distinguish VT from burnout and compassion fatigue.
    Evaluate the concepts of post traumatic growth and vicarious resilience.
    Analyse the role of organisations in providing quality supervision and promoting self-care in VT risk and protection.
    Conduct a wellness assessment, and take home tools to create a personal wellness plan.

    Material presented in the training will draw on research from Blue Knot Foundation's Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery www.blueknot.org.au/guidelines.
