Vicarious Trauma SIG

The Vicarious Trauma and Self-Care Special Interest Group was approved by the ISSTD board in 2018. The mission of the SIG is to raise awareness and deepen understanding of the impact of clinical trauma work on the person of a clinician/researcher and their livelihood, as well as develop tools to protect and restore mental health of a provider. We would like to further these goals within the ISSTD and to work with ISSTD to disseminate this knowledge worldwide among professionals and the
public.
