Peer professionals provide an array of recovery-oriented supports 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 mental and emotional wellbeing.

This two-hour interactive workshop will review how trauma situations may present, signs to recognize and cues alerting as to when to step away from a trauma inducing situation. Content will also offer practical strategies for self-care including ways to build resiliency.
