Transforming Vicarious Trauma: A Training Curriculum by LEAP

Vicarious trauma is the process of change that care providers undergo as a result of their exposure to patient experiences of violence, abuse, and trauma. This training module can be used to address the adverse effects of this process on care providers and staff. The module includes all the content needed to conduct a 1 to 1.5 hour training on vicarious trauma (Items 2-5). We have included "Facilitating Discussion about Vicarious Trauma" (Item 1) which provides the materials for a full-day curriculum that can be used to "train the trainers" who will go on to facilitate the 1-1.5 hour clinic training sessions:
