Working with people around their struggles and successes leaves an impact on our personal and professional selves that travels with us when we leave work each day. Being the manager or supervisor of staff in the field brings special concerns. How do we give voice to that experience while keeping our work as the focus? How do we manage the differing styles and needs of staff? In this workshop, we will discuss identifying and responding to the signals of vicarious trauma in ourselves and on our team. We will discuss ways to build daily awareness, to invite everyone on staff to customize response strategies that work for each individual, and how to humanize the trauma load in an accessible way that reduces isolation and builds community.
