Topic: Turning your Thermostat Down - Preserving Emotional & Physical Energy When Vicarious Trauma Sets In
(Part 1)

2:30pm Pacific / 4:30pm Central / 5:30pm EST
Presenter: Diane Mouradian
Offers IMIA CEUs 0.15 CEUs



To understand what vicarious trauma and self-care mean to YOU, explore your personal framework, along with the cultural, familial and socio-economic influences in your life.  How does vicarious trauma occur? Is everyone susceptible?  What might it look like in me?  What can happen if I DON'T address it? This is an interactive, practical, hands-on workshop that will allow a participant to answer the following:  What is vicarious trauma? Am I exhibiting signs of vicarious trauma?  How does it manifest itself in my emotional and physical well-being?  How do my own cultural and philosophical beliefs and background impact the way that I react to my experiences? What coping mechanisms do I use?  How can I incorporate healthy coping mechanisms into my daily life, starting TODAY? The presenter will take participants through a self-assessment designed to create a personal vicarious-trauma profile and then assist in the creation of a SMART self-care toolkit. 
  • What Is Vicarious Trauma?
  • Am I exhibiting signs of Vicarious Trauma?
  • How does it specifically manifest itself in my emotional and physical well-being at the current time?

Topic: In the Heat of the Moment - Mindfulness and Sensory Shift
(Part 2)

2:30pm Pacific / 4:30pm Central / 5:30pm EST
Presenter: Diane Mouradian
Offers IMIA CEUs 0.15 CEUs

Vicarious Trauma has both immediate and long term effects on our emotional and physical well-being. Building on the understanding that our body’s fight-flight-freeze response is activated in a split-second, mindfulness is part of a solid self-care practice. It is possible and, oftentimes, necessary to ground ourselves immediately, in order to contain emotion and continue providing service to our clients and their LEPs.  Learning objectives will include:  Trauma-based encounters that exist within the field of interpretation, Identification of personal triggers, scaling your level of personal reactivity to trauma-based encounters, Sensory shifting techniques to mitigate emotional dysregulation.  The presenter will engage participants in an interactive exercise to develop a personalized, mindfulness practice that allows them to self-assess for emotional dysregulation in the moment. Thereafter, participants will identify sensory shifting techniques that they can utilize on the spot, to de-escalate themselves during times of high reactivity.
 
  • Trauma-based encounters that exist within the field of interpretation and personal triggers
  • Scaling your level of personal reactivity to trauma-based encounters
  • Creation of an emotional regulation routine
