How does a counselor maintain their capacity for genuine empathy while working with trauma survivors without experiencing secondary trauma? Clients are experiencing traumas such as childhood sexual abuse, combat trauma, and home invasion to name a few. The purpose of this session is to discuss how to attend to one's empathic capacity. Program objectives include identifying empathic capacity, exploring the impact of clients' stories, recognition of early warning signs, and creation of a personal empathy care plan. A lecture/discussion format will be utilized.
