It is believed that carers working with trauma survivors experience vicarious trauma because of the work they do. Vicarious trauma is the emotional residue of exposure that carers have from working with vulnerable children as they hear their trauma stories and become witnesses to the pain, fear, and terror that trauma survivors have endured.

Anyone who engages empathetically with survivors of traumatic incidents, torture, and material relating to their trauma, is potentially affected, including carers and health professionals.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand vicarious trauma according to the research and identify at least three factors that may contribute to vicarious trauma in those who have been abused
  2. To understand vicarious resilience according to the research and identify at least three factors that empower and promote the well-being of trauma professionals
  3. TTo be aware of the key components of a self-care plan

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
