ON DEMAND: MCLE: How to Cope with Vicarious Trauma

Class recorded October 26, 2020

Those who provide services to victims of crimes and others who suffer trauma can often experience trauma themselves as a result: vicarious trauma, as well as burnout. This can be damaging to the provider and also result in additional trauma for the client. This training will define important terms, explore risk factors, and help attorneys and other service providers develop strategies for preventing and addressing both vicarious trauma and burnout. Attendees will learn self-care techniques, healthy coping skills, and receive tips for working with victims of trauma. Training in dealing with vicarious trauma can, in turn, create a balanced work environment and minimize the risk of re-traumatizing clients.
