A Trauma-Informed Approach to Taking Care of Ourselves

Those who work with victims of trauma are superheroes, dedicating our careers to helping others but also more likely to be impacted by vicarious trauma and chronic high stress.  Self-care is essential if we are to protect ourselves, foster our resilience, and better serve our community. 

Combining her extensive professional experience in complex trauma and her personal journey through medical trauma, Dr. Desroches presents an approach that applies trauma-informed and positive psychology principles to taking better care of ourselves, in order to better take care of others.

In this workshop, participants will learn about:

  • Trauma and its impacts, particularly in people working with victims of trauma.

  • Key features of trauma-informed care and positive psychology, and how these can be applied to self-care.

  • Important domains of self-care and key strategies and approaches.

  • Overcoming common obstacles to self-care.

  • Self-reflection and strategies for developing individualized self-care programs, including a 30-day Self-Care Challenge.
