Friday 2nd October - Dealing with Vicarious Trauma
A Workshop with Jacqui Dillon
We are pleased to say that, after our previous successful workshops, Jacqui Dillon is returning to Colchester to offer another workshop on "Dealing with Vicarious Trauma - Help for the Helper"
Vicarious trauma is the process of change that happens because you care about other people who have been hurt, and feel committed or responsible to help them. Over time this process can lead to changes in your psychological, physical, and spiritual well-being.
The workshop will explore:
o Risk factors in developing vicarious trauma
o Signs of vicarious trauma
o Strategies for dealing effectively with the impact of vicarious trauma
o Beyond Vicarious Trauma – vicarious transformation
