WOL356 The Fundamentals – Trauma Informed Care*

Traumatic events are a near-ubiquitous human experience substantiating the need for a trauma-informed system of care.

Principles of trauma-informed care will be addressed, with an emphasis on increased awareness and universal screening. Trauma-informed practices will be summarized, and empirically supported trauma-specific modalities will be described. Resiliency factors will be identified in terms of prevention and intervention. Post-traumatic growth will be explored as a means of developing new meaning and insight following traumatic experiences.

WOL509 Becoming Better: Vicarious Resilience and Vicarious Post-traumatic Growth*

Training fee: $40
Instructor: Lindsay Martin, PhD, LPC, NCC

Vicarious trauma is a significant risk to practitioners working with trauma survivors. The effects may result in pervasive and permanent transformations in the helper’s belief system and worldview. While less discussed, there are benefits related to trauma work that can lead to rewarding and inspiring outcomes. As such, vicarious resilience and vicarious post-traumatic growth are two positive constructs associated with beneficial outcomes among practitioners.

In this course, we learn to recognize and enhance our potential for positive experiences while working with traumatized clients. As practitioners exposed to stories of pain and suffering, we learn to embrace our role as helper and healer while internalizing the need to protect ourselves. With a focus on resilience-building and growth following trauma, we learn to proactively enhance our well-being through self-care, action planning and trauma stewardship. This course serves as a guide to prevention and intervention strategies for building a long-term approach to meet the challenges of trauma work so that we may persist in our journey to help others.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this web-based training, participants will be able to:

  • Define vicarious traumatic exposure and the ways it is transmitted
  • Determine the potential positive effects of primary trauma exposure
  • Explore the positive effects associated with working with trauma survivors
  • Analyze various strategies to increase the potential for positive outcomes when working with trauma survivors
  • Integrate trauma stewardship into practice to promote practitioner well-being and longevity
