Teesside MIND Vicarious Trauma and Self Care – Wednesday 22nd November 2023

This course is now fully booked 

This online webinar will be delivered as part of the Teeswide activity for National Safeguarding Adults Week 2023 where the theme for the day is “Who cares for the carers? Secondary and Vicarious Trauma”.

Vicarious trauma can affect anyone who engages empathetically with survivors of traumatic incidents. On this day, we want you to think about how you and your colleagues can prioritise your wellbeing at work and this session aims to support you to do this.

This session will cover:

  • Stress
  • Vicarious trauma
  • How to look for signs in yourself and others
  • The importance of self care

About the facilitator: 

Amy Loughran is an accredited therapist of over seven years, having worked in occupational health within the Blue Light services where she has delivered this topic to staff in great depth due to the impacts trauma can have on individuals personally and professionally in their line of work.

Amy is an associate therapist for Mind and Associate Trainer on the Mind Workplace Wellbeing project as well as running her own private practice.  She has experience in delivering training to different organisations on how to support staff and themselves.
