Vicarious trauma is an occupational challenge for interpreters working in the fields of victim services, law enforcement, emergency medical services, fire services, and other allied professions, due to their continuous exposure to victims of trauma and violence.
In this course, attendees will learn about vicarious trauma, its causes, and its symptoms. They will listen to expert opinions on how to cope with trauma both at the time of the interpreting session and during their daily life. To dive deeper into their own understanding and self-awareness, attendees will also be asked to reflect on their attitudes and behaviors that can be contributing to daily stress and burnout. As an interpreter, what kinds of strategies do you use to prevent compassion fatigue?
