Practitioners in the child and family welfare sector are at a higher risk for vicarious trauma, a cumulative process which can creep up, changing our attitudes, worldviews, and ultimately cutting short many promising careers. Some participants who have completed this workshop discovered they were actually more affected by their clients’ trauma than they had ever previously realised.
Supporting clients, whether they are adults, adolescents or young children, can be taxing both physically and mentally. It is understandable that at times workers will feel overburdened by their role assisting vulnerable clients with multiple issues. Being mindful of this is a necessary step in preventing ‘burnout’.
Tea and coffee facilities available and lunch provided.
