Vicarious trauma is an occupational challenge for forensic science professionals whose work entails continuous contact with victims of crime and violence, and the analysis of traumatic material. This webinar introduces the Vicarious Trauma Toolkit, and its premise that while the exposure to vicarious trauma may be inevitable, potentially negative consequences can be mitigated by organizations accepting responsibility to act and becoming vicarious trauma-informed.
Participants will learn about the Vicarious Trauma Organizational Readiness Guide (VT-ORG), an evidence-informed assessment of an organization’s current capacity to address vicarious trauma. Examples will be provided on how to search the Toolkit’s Compendium of Resources to find tools appropriate for forensic organizations. Read more here.
