The Impact of Vicarious Trauma – Individual Session

This course will focus on understanding vicarious trauma, the emotional exposure that can occur from hearing and seeing other people's traumatic stories. Listening to testimony, and viewing evidence, like criminal cases, involving horrific details, stories of child abuse, and even civil cases, can be traumatic. We will analyze how vicarious trauma can impact people in different ways, potentially creating problems that may cause a mental health condition or burnout. The goal is to develop professional awareness and to recognize the need for self-care. This course will be taught as a facilitate student-centered learning model, creating an opportunity for hands-on activities and discussion. Projector and audio Question: I believe this presentation would great for all of the above but on allows you to pick one category. Sessions will be accepted at this time with a focus on students, freelancers, officials, or CART/caption.
