Credit Available - See CEs/Contact Hours tab below.




Description

Course Format

Hybrid: recorded webinar and reading-based online activity.


Individuals in the helping profession are at risk for encountering trauma, both directly and indirectly.  The NASW establishes professional ethics that guide practice and this has changed over time with the advance of knowledge and technology. The Council for Social Work Education developed a guide in advanced social work practice. This document includes recommendations to identify and differentiate the signs and symptoms of secondary traumatic stress/vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout. The goal of the workshop is to identify concepts of trauma, recognize vulnerability and apply these definitions to analyze their own risk. Time will be spent exploring the dynamics of a vicarious trauma “normally” experienced compared to during a crisis experienced globally, such as that experienced during COVID-19.  Participants will work on formulating a plan of action to assess the impact of these concepts on their own practice.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define trauma and the potential impact on systems
  2. Describe the systemic nature of vicarious trauma and the importance of safety and resilience for the client, organization, and practitioner.
  3. Compare the dynamics of vicarious trauma experienced under “normal” circumstances and during a crisis experienced globally.
  4. Analyze situational factors that increase vulnerability.
  5. Formulate a plan to address issues of vulnerability.

Research:  The American Psychological Association maintains a database on publications about trauma. Google Scholar includes links to numerous articles on vicarious trauma.

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and facility therapists, psychologists, addiction professionals, case managers, and other interested individuals.
