Workshop Description: This workshop will define vicarious trauma and distinguish it from ideas of a job's "normal wear and tear." This training provides participants the opportunity to reflect on their current work experiences and learn preventative strategies for dealing with vicarious trauma. When considering environmental factors, levels of communication within organizations and personal methods of dealing with vicarious trauma, we can paint a better picture of creating healthy support and strategies for maintaining emotional well-being. This training is available to mental health professionals.

Description: 

DOR National MeetingThe Resource Sharing Project is providing this unique 2.5-day training on enhancing sexual assault services exclusively to OVW Rural Grantees that are dual/multi-service agencies. This national meeting will bring you together with your peers from dual/multiservice advocacy agencies to discuss aspects of providing innovative services to rural sexual assault survivors. Participants will learn how to use their strengths to craft individualized plans to confront sexual violence in their communities. Together, we will identify the barriers in rural communities and build on our strengths to create meaningful solutions for dual/multiservice advocacy agencies. There are only 100 seats available for this conference. Each Rural Grant (lead grantee and sub-grantees combined) may send four attendees. DOR State Coalition InstituteAfter the training, we invite state coalition staff to stay for the DOR State Coalition Institute, a half-day meeting to discuss methods and strategies in implementation of statewide sexual assault service enhancement projects. We will aid state coalitions in guiding member centers through the strengths-based assessments, adapting the Deepening Our Roots curriculum, and creating customized strategies to overcome the cultural and organizational barriers to high-quality rural sexual assault services in dual/multi-service agencies. The Institute must have a minimum of four coalitions in attendance.

Description: 

This interactive course for managers will focus on understanding the building block concepts of vicarious trauma (VT), vicarious transformation, compassion fatigue (CF), compassion satisfaction (CS), and burnout, and how they can be used in management of organizations that provide services to those who have experienced trauma or great suffering. Participants will learn how various management techniques can enhance or impede creating the safest working environment for the personnel who work with sexual assault victims. Additionally, the business case for incorporating worker-focused VT/CS-CF policies will be reviewed. During the afternoon, participants will use course materials to create a draft values and vision statement for their organization. The final portion of the course will focus on developing actual policies and procedures that can be examined and refined for use by the participant’s organization.
