Overview and Purpose

The one-day vicarious trauma and self-care course is led by our psychologists who are trained supervisors and promotes the concept that personal and professional wellbeing is central to trauma informed practice delivery. This Heal The Healers Training Course is specifically designed for two options: those staff working with people victims who have experienced trauma; and managers supporting staff who deliver the service. We facilitate a safe space to understand the impact of stress, self-care, compassion fatigue and building knowledge and skills to promote wellbeing.

The training approach is strengths based and delivered to accommodate all learning styles. It draws from the latest resiliency and wellbeing research and the aim is to increase practitioner self- awareness and build skills to help maintain personal wellbeing.

This training is provided to progress and promote positive workforce wellbeing and achieve the Scottish Government national vision: to create a trauma informed and responsive workforce in Scotland.
