Course Goals and Objective:


1) Develop an understanding of vicarious trauma, secondary traumatic stress (STS), compassion fatigue, institutional trauma, and burn-out.

2) Exploration of current individual risk of developing these conditions.

3) Learning about a number of effective strategies to prevent and treat these conditions.

4) Trying out a few of these strategies in the workshop.

5) Developing a preventative plan of action for the future.


Social Workers and others in the helping professions will be exposed to vicarious trauma and are at risk of experiencing institutional trauma, secondary traumatic stress (STS), and burn-out. These conditions often result in diminished effectiveness in work as well as a significant disruption of the person’s social, family and spiritual life. This workshop will explore several antidotes to the development of these conditions, including self-care strategies, doing shadow work, increased awareness of sparkling developments and hidden presences, therapeutic writing, community rituals, and finding the sweetness in the darkness. A significant amount of time will be devoted to experiential exercises where participants can explore some of these methods and develop a preventative plan for themselves.

The National Association of Social Workers Iowa Chapter has determined that this training event meets the requirements of the Iowa Board of Social Work for 6.0 CEUs.
