Vicarious Trauma

For those indirectly exposed to trauma.

We are here for you too.

Vicarious trauma refers to the detrimental impacts suffered by people who are indirectly exposed to traumatic material. This may include workers who are exposed to traumatic events, such as:

  • hearing about incidents of abuse, violence, torture, or neglect from those who have had that experience, or
  • witnessing the trauma experienced by others.

Trauma Assist is uniquely experienced to unpack the affects of vicarious trauma. Untangling the emotions and narratives that have been witnessed or seeped in through consistent support, requires the empathy and skill of an experienced counsellor or psychologist.

Our programme will provide you with support as well as a pragmatic understanding of the nature and affects of vicarious trauma.

We will help you recognise the impacts and provide evidence-based strategies to offset the impacts.
