Vicarious trauma management

Vicarious trauma can seriously impact on the well-being of a workforce and organisation. Managing vicarious trauma not only promotes the wellbeing of staff, it is cost effective and assists organisations in proactively complying with work, health and safety requirements.

Vicarious trauma can produce significant and prolonged human and financial costs in the following areas:

  • Employee physical and mental well-being;
  • Employee work performance;
  • Collegial relationships;
  • Workplace culture;
  • Staff attrition rates;
  • Unplanned absences from the workplace;
  • Worker compensation claims.
