Event description
Managing Vicarious Trauma - Blue Knot Foundation

About this Event

This one-day interactive professional development training explores the nature, dynamics and risks of vicarious trauma (VT), contrasts it with burnout, post-traumatic stress disorder and compassion fatigue, and supports you to stay healthy and safe in your work with people impacted by diverse traumas. It focuses on your emotional, psychological and other needs, and provides practical strategies on how to manage the impacts of doing your work, and how to build resilience so that you can continue to provide quality care to others.

By participating in this professional development training, learners will:

1. Demonstrate knowledge of trauma, its impacts, stress response, survivor coping strategies and possibilities for recovery

2. Define Vicarious Trauma, its development, risk and protective factors, resilience, barriers to identifying it, and distinguish VT from other stress experiences

3. Analyse the role of organisations, trauma-informed supervision and self-care in managing vicarious trauma risk

4. Conduct a wellness assessment and take home tools to create a personal wellness plan

Who should attend?

Anyone in the workplace exposed to trauma stories or other trauma material. This includes participants from diverse sectors including, but not limited to, aged care, disability, health, mental health, Alcohol and Other Drugs services, legal, justice, domestic and family violence, child protection, emergency, housing, settlement, and employment services.

Facilitator: Dragan Zan Wright

Dragan is an experienced Psychotherapist who runs Creating Differently, a service that specialises in working with adults from a background of childhood abuse and trauma. As a survivor of such a background himself, with the physical and mental health issues that ensued, he holds the holistic perspective of having been a consumer of services and then experiencing the other side working as a professional. Dragan offers a skilful and passionate attitude and has trained and worked in a recovery focus with residential groups and individuals from extensive trauma backgrounds who exhibit the adaptations one would expect to see. He is also committed to a psycho-educational role – helping professionals and consumers understand how interpersonal trauma impacts the developing brain, ongoing interpersonal relationships, personal coping mechanisms, how trauma affects a persons relationship with services and how services can provide a Trauma Informed Care approach.

"Dragan is an outstanding trainer. He comes with a wealth of knowledge and understands the needs/wants of a group in training. So engaging and intuitive. Thank you!" - Melanie Charlton, Enrolled Nurse
