Self-care should be an individual priority, but it can not be achieved without support from your professional and personal communities. True self-care requires support and resources from leadership. This workshop provides an overview of the research on the vicarious trauma of working with families impacted by trauma. There will be opportunities to self-assess how your professional community is helping in prevention of burn out and concrete opportunities for growth.
1. Increase their understanding on the impact of vicarious trauma and how it negativity impacts caring professionals
2. Apply resources such as the quality of life scale to help self-check their own risk for burnout
3. Assess how their workplace handles burnout and how they do/do not prioritize self-care
