The Art of Wellbeing: Understanding, preventing and managing vicarious trauma

Gain advanced clinical practice skills in the art of wellbeing

This workshop is for everyone who wishes to maintain their own resilient practice and for those who supervise and mentor others. Join Dr Richard Cash, our trauma expert, to understand the range of potential reactions to distressing, confronting or objectional materials at work and learn about the different ways working with trauma survivors can affect you. You will learn how to recognise and differentiate a number of responses, including vicarious trauma, burnout, compassion fatigue, and moral injury. Develop best practice strategies for prevention and learn how to identify early warning signs, implement effective self care strategies and access further support.
