Supervising During a Crisis: Managing Vicarious Trauma and Client Care
Time & Location
About the Event
Rachel Michaelsen, LCSW
In this unprecedented time, staff and supervisors who work with at-risk youth are challenged in new and unexpected ways. It is important to remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint! There are unique challenges to maintaining equanimity for both supervisors and clinicians. In this class we will explore barriers to making time to address vicarious traumatization and ways that time spend on burn-out prevention can challenge getting work done for both supervisors and supervisees. Participants will develop a plan to manage vicarious traumatization for themselves and ideas about how to support their supervisees in maintaining a balance between work and home responsibilities.
- Assess self and supervisees vicarious traumatization prevention strategies
- Provide guidance in balancing vicarious traumatization prevention and client care for supervisees
- Develop a plan to address and prevent vicarious traumatization in themselves and their supervisees
