Vicarious Trauma & Burnout are occupational hazards from working in emergency services (eg. police, paramedics, ED staff, fire-fighters) and helping professions (eg. nursing, social work teaching, vets) that can seriously impact well-being. We are transformed and impacted by tough jobs like these, for better and worse. To help others, we need to look after ourselves.

Presented by Adelaide Psychologist, Dr Renae Hayward, Clinical Manager of Human Psychology, this workshop explores the “costs of caring” and provides information, self-audit, skills and self-care processes and tools to support professionals working in tough jobs that expose them to secondary trauma. The key concepts of occupational stress, burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma are defined and then early warning signs, symptoms and observable behaviours associated with these conditions are identified and discussed. Personal and organisational strategies for minimising the impact of occupational trauma are reviewed including development of an individualised self-care plan.

We have to take care of ourselves and reflect on what has led us to engage in our work, the impact it has on us, and the meaning of and lessons gained from what we do. It is a gift to accompany clients on their path to healing from trauma. And we must value that gift by taking care of ourselves and culti­vating our resources to continue to serve those clients who need our help in ways that do not require an unbearable price in our own mental and physical wellbeing.
