This Vicarious Trauma CPD event aims to get professionals talking more openly about the impact of other people's stories. Time will also be taken to list the causes and signs of Vicarious Trauma and to raise awareness of what professionals, our peers, Supervisors and organisations can do to support those experiencing the signs, but more importantly preventative measures. The event will provide a good balance of theory, pairs work, small group discussion and will be delivered at an easy pace.

increase self-awareness of possible vicarious traumatisation;
engage in self-care skills and self-soothing activities;
engage social supports;
mobilise organisational supports to prevent and address vicarious traumatisation;
