Vicarious Trauma

Victim services providers sometimes take on the trauma of the victims and survivors they serve. Whether an experience reminds us of traumatic events in our own past or stirs a deep-seated feeling of connection and compassion, it is hard not to have emotional responses to this work. Daily exposure to trauma can take its toll on well-being.

Vicarious Trauma Toolkit

This toolkit provides resources that organizations can use to create a supportive work environment that recognizes the toll vicarious trauma (when you feel the trauma of others) can take when you work with victims and survivors of crime. The kit includes videos, training presentations, factsheets, and other ready-to-use tools.

Consider taking a companion with you when communicating with law enforcement. Ask a family member, friend, or partner to be with you during these discussions. Some police departments have trained advocates who may also be able to support you.
