Recognizing And Managing Vicarious
Trauma And Compassion Fatigue In Providers
Consulting and training to help you create a trauma-effective workplace
Frontline professionals are highly skilled at helping people who have experienced trauma.
But their difficult and complex work can result in its own form of trauma in the provider. For example, if a counselor is treating soldiers who suffer from PTSD, she too may eventually develop symptoms of PTSD from the trauma she is exposed to while providing therapy. Some call it Secondary Traumatic Stress, Vicarious Trauma or Compassion Fatigue.
A collective term for the consequent symptoms a
professional may have from helping others who have experienced trauma.
If your organization employs medical professionals, teachers, first responders, therapists or social workers, you need a way to help them deal with Provider Trauma. In addition to individual impact, your organization can experience negative impact as well.
Provider Trauma can result in:
- Decreased employee satisfaction
- Decreased productivity
- Low staff morale
- High turnover
- Professional burnout
- Poorer client outcomes
Create A Support System For Staff Members Dealing With Provider Trauma
The first step is recognizing that your team members may be impacted by vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and secondary traumatic stress. The next step is to create a supportive, trauma-effective workplace that helps them get the help they need in working through this Provider Trauma.
