Bearing witness to the personal traumas of our clients and exposure to public traumas such as gun violence and terrorism, can result in vicarious traumatizing (VT) for helping professionals. VT can negatively impact one’s professional work and personal life. Learn holistic approaches to prevention and addressing vicarious traumatization. In this course participants will assess their level of vicarious traumatization, learn and experience a variety of techniques for addressing VT (including art, breath work, visualization and methods from energy medicine and energy psychology) and develop a plan to prevent and address VT.
