Vicarious trauma management

Vicarious trauma is the impact on someone's central psychological needs and world view when they hear stories of trauma. Workers who hear or read about trauma such as sexual assault or family violence are at risk of experiencing vicarious trauma.

We have extensive experience in the provision of comprehensive vicarious trauma management solutions for employers.
