In this course, we examine the impact of vicarious trauma on service providers and the systems in which they work. Emphasis is placed on identifying risk factors and symptoms of burn out, as well as in identifying practices and tools that support self-care and healing. Participants will have the opportunity to practice self-care activities with colleagues and develop skills that promote sustainability and longevity in their work.
