Trauma is what happens when we experience a deeply disturbing or distressing event that drowns our minds and overloads our ability to cope. It can overload our emotions, stop us from feeling a full range of emotions or it can even shake us so much that we lose our sense of self.

The session will provide participants with tools to identify vicarious trauma and how to reduce or negate its impact in our profession.
