Join us for a special presentation by nationally recognized expert, Dr. Janine D’Anniballe! Registration available here.
When we experience overwhelming volumes of emotionally charged information our body, mind, and spirit adapt to help us cope. First responders, especially in law enforcement, as well as prosecutors, clinicians, and others who work with victims of crime, often experience what is known as vicarious trauma. This results from working with traumatized clients and reports of their experiences over time.
Vicarious trauma can take many forms, some of them quite visible and others more obscure. Even the person experiencing vicarious trauma may not recognize the symptoms or identify them as something resulting from their work. How do we know when our staff members, our volunteers, or we personally are experiencing vicarious trauma?
This workshop will explore the phenomenon of vicarious trauma, including the use of an assessment tool to address trauma within a group or with specific individuals. The presentation will include implications for vicarious trauma and current holistic interventions in mitigating the secondary post-traumatic stress response.
Dr. Janine D’Anniballe is a licensed psychologist and nationally recognized expert who specializes in the areas of neurobiology of trauma, vicarious trauma and treatment for survivors. Her expertise, professionalism, and presentation style have made her a highly sought-after trainer. Dr. D’Anniballe has provided training and consultation to attorneys, law enforcement, military personnel, mental health professionals, victim advocates and University staff in more than 30 states across the country. In 2003, Dr. D’Anniballe joined the faculty of the National Judicial Education Program that educates judges on sexual assault issues and how these cases are approached in the courtroom so as to minimize re-traumatization of victims without undermining defendants’ constitutional rights.
