   This two day workshop is designed for managers, coordinators and staff who supervise victim advocates working on the front lines of domestic violence and/or sexual assault programs. Participants will learn the importance of incorporating vicarious trauma and resiliency practices into supervisory roles with advocates. Available continuing education credits include 3 hours of Supervision CEUs.  

Participants will learn to describe the process of vicarious impact on a helper; distinguish between the concepts of secondary stress, vicarious trauma and vicarious resilience; identify key vulnerablities and strengths in their own practice as a supervisor; and list strategies for the transformation of vicarious trauma into resilience.
