Helpers regularily encounter stories and symptoms of trauma in their roles. There is growing evidence that the impact of directly supporting others through expereinces of trauma goes beyond burnout or fatigue. The toll of witnessing intense human experiences and emotions can contribute to a negative transformation of the helper's own sense of safety, and of being competent and purposeful. This workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to examine their own experience and become aware of the signs of both vicarious trauma and vicarious growth. Participants will develop a personalized plan to repair negative effects as well as accelerate their resilience.
This is an introductory-intermediate level workshop intended for Social Workers, social service and health care professionals, teachers, and anyone working in the helping profession.

Lecture, personal reflection, video, case study exercises, skill development and small group discussions.

Sexual Assault Response and Resource
A Guide for Rural and Remote Communities
For those who live in a community/region that is rural or remote, it is clear that such communities face unique challenges in responding to sexual assault. The purpose of this training module is to guide rural and remote communities in overcoming these challenges by improving coordination of services for victims across professional disciplines and agencies. The best way to do this is by establishing some version of a Sexual Assault Response and Resource Team (SARRT).
The Online Training Institute (OLTI) is FREE. There is no cost to register, enroll, or complete any of the modules.
