Presented by Relationships Australia

Psychological trauma can occur when a person is not able to cope with a distressing or overwhelming event, or process the emotions involved with their experiences.

Professionals including clinicians, frontline staff, supervisors and managers can experience vicarious trauma as a result of hearing about another person’s trauma and witnessing their associated distress. Over time, this work-related exposure to clients’ trauma can have a significant impact on professionals’ wellbeing.

This workshop will explore different types of trauma and how they can impact staff and organisations. Factors that enhance and undermine resilience will be discussed. We will also outline strategies that you can use to manage vicarious trauma and maintain your wellbeing at work.
