Online Webinar – Working in trauma saturated environments: the psychosocial wellbeing of domestic abuse service providers

Drawing on findings from a multi-method research study exploring the psychosocial wellbeing of women who provide a wide range of specialist support and services for women and girls, this webinar presents qualitative interview data with women who provide specialist support to women subjected to domestic abuse.

It highlights the increased complexity of need of survivors, the expansion of workloads and the personal and professional costs and consequences for those working in this sector. It explores the relevance and applicability of the concept of vicarious resilience for this sector and offers thoughts on mitigating practices to reduce and manage the effects of close working with traumatized populations.
