Vicarious Trauma Management

Vicarious Trauma Management

Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia (R&DVSA) operates from evidence base practice. In seeking to manage the risk and impacts of vicarious traumatisation on its own workforce, the organisation researched and developed its own Vicarious Trauma Management Program. In 2007, this Program received the WorkCover NSW’s Safe Work Award for ‘The Best Solution to an Identified Occupational Health and Safety Issue’.

We can assist organisations to respond to vicarious trauma and design and implement effective vicarious trauma management frameworks. At R&DVSA, we believe that a collaborative process is the foundation for effectively managing vicarious trauma. We work closely with all clients to ensure that the framework and services provided are tailored to the needs of the organisation.

“The Vicarious Trauma Management Program we have developed together has produced a consistent significant impact on reducing the levels of vicarious trauma in staff, as well as demonstrated positive outcomes on organisational bottom lines, such as productivity, satisfaction and attrition. We value the achievements we have made with R&DVSA and our work together”.

R&DVSA continuously evaluates the effectiveness of our internal and external vicarious trauma management programs.
