Working with trauma can mean constant exposure to difficult material. Add to that the 24-hour news cycle and the exhaustion of daily life – especially after the global pandemic and we can all relate to feeling burnout.

This can have a particularly detrimental impact on professionals working with clients who have had trauma, as it can affect our ability to care for our clients compassionately, and also have an impact on our own mental health and wellbeing. Noticing these signs early on and implementing self-care strategies can help to manage the impact of vicarious trauma, and prevent us from burning out.
