Join us on October 22, 2020 for a FREE training regarding Vicarious Trauma presented by Jim Holler, Crimes Against Children Consultant and previous Chief of Police and Child Advocacy Center MDT member. Sign up at vicarioustraumatraining.eventbrite.com today! Space is limited. Vicarious traumatization is unique to police officers, social workers and other crisis workers because of their frequent contact with human suffering, especially when dealing with children. Multidisciplinary child abuse members routinely must respond to situations where they are exposed to the worst of people and the worst of what people do to each other. The psychological impact of such incidents is referred to as vicarious traumatization. Vicarious traumatization is the psychological cost of caring for victims who have been traumatized while feeling a sense of responsibility to help. This training will address ways police officers and social workers can deal with the two types of trauma that may be experienced: secondary traumatic stress disorder and vicarious traumatization.
