Vicarious trauma is the term used for the experience of those working with trauma victims. Little bits of others’ trauma experiences seep into our lives, subtly accumulating. Our approach to the trauma we experience by helping the traumatized is summarized well, “Caring for others is noble; caring for yourself is required.” We will learn ways to identify, prevent and recover from this ‘front lines trauma’.
