Sharon Gold-Steinberg, PhD
Here is what attendees had to say about Dr. Gold-Steinberg after her 2018 presentation:
"Really appreciated the speaker's knowledge, transparency, willingness to demonstrate, and provide a lot of examples and tools for different stages of treatment."
"Excellent presentation- Excellent graphic concepts."
"Conference was excellent - presenter was well prepared and knowledgeable. Very much appreciated the very comprehensive hand-outs!"
"Speaker did an excellent job of repeating/reframing questions asked by audience. Engaging, transparent speaker. Excellent pace and stayed on schedule. Outstanding handouts - easy to follow along and stay focused."
"Dynamic presenter, with many ideas of tools to establish a collaborative therapeutic relationship."
Witnessing the trauma of others is the primary risk factor for developing vicarious trauma—a mixture of PTSD symptoms and disillusionment with our work as therapists. Yet most clinicians feel unprepared by their professional training to address these challenges. This workshop will validate vicarious trauma as an occupational hazard, rather than as a failure of self-care. Dr. Gold-Steinberg will offer both individual and communal strategies to ameliorate this risk, providing participants with opportunities to practice relevant skills and to brainstorm interventions that will buttress and sustain their professional practice.
Learning Objectives - at the end of this conference, participants will be able to:
1. Define vicarious trauma and recognize its symptoms.
2. Name 2 benefits of vicarious resilience.
3. Describe steps to debrief from vicarious trauma exposure.
4. Identify 2 organizational strategies to limit vicarious trauma exposure.
5. Identify 2 individual strategies to protect against vicarious trauma exposure.
6. Name 2 benefits of post-traumatic growth.
