Vicarious Trauma: Creating Resilience – webinar

12th July 2018, 2-3pm. A one-hour webinar ($55) on Vicarious Trauma is being offered by Adam Blanch, Trauma Psychologist with Good Psychology. The event has been organised in association with Pro Bono Australia who say:

Vicarious trauma is a huge problem for frontline workers, including aid workers, social workers, emergency responders and therapists, but it isn’t limited to just them. Anyone who must deal with the impacts of violence, disaster, poverty and social inequity is at risk, no matter how removed from the frontline they may be.

This webinar explores the latest understandings of trauma, vicarious trauma and resilience with a view to understanding how you can protect yourself and your workforce from it. We’ll explore what causes it, why some people are more vulnerable than others and how to build resilient responders.

Adam Blanch is a psychologist with 30 years of experience working with trauma. He specialises in the clinical treatment of trauma and offers training in resilience, trauma treatment and trauma first aid to organisations.
