Resource: National Coalition Against Domestic Violence presents “What Supervisors and Leadership Need to Know About Vicarious Trauma and Supporting Your Staff.” This resource promotes health and wellness that are important for everyone’s daily life. We often hear advocates encouraging victims and survivors of domestic violence to do as they recover from the trauma they experienced.

We hear less about how advocates, in doing the work with trauma survivors, open themselves up to an occupational hazard known as vicarious trauma. Supervisors and leadership at domestic violence organizations can lessen the impacts of vicarious trauma for their employees with some forethought and strategy about how their organization runs on a day-to-day basis.
