The newly released OVC Vicarious Trauma Toolkit can be used to:
- conduct an assessment of your agency’s current capacity as a vicarious trauma-informed organization
- review your existing capacity, identify gaps, and prioritize needs
- locate resources and tools to help meet your identified needs
- develop a comprehensive plan to address exposure to single incidents of crime or violence and acts of mass violence and terrorism.
Additionally, the toolkit contains a state-of-the-art repository of nearly 500 resources tailored specifically to these fields that provides the knowledge and skills necessary for organizations to address the vicarious trauma needs of their staff and promote resiliency.
