Trauma Strategies for Peer Support Using Self-Care

July 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Peer professionals provide an array of recovery-oriented and person-centered care which include empathetic engagement with survivors of trauma circumstances. This work at times can increase the peer’s vulnerability to vicarious trauma or secondary stress. Potentially it can result in the loss of ability to objectively help others find their recovery pathways and can affect the peer’s and other staff mental and emotional wellbeing.
This workshop reviews how trauma situations may present when supporting clients to recognize and cues alerting as to when to step away from a trauma-inducing situation. Content will also offer practical strategies for peers and other staff self-care and self-supportive resources to build and maintain resiliency.
