Why Book Speaker Barbara Rubel?
KEYNOTE BY SPEAKER BARBARA RUBEL
When working with those who have faced adverse experiences, first responders and essential workers can experience vicarious trauma. Closely related terms include compassion fatigue, empathic distress and secondary traumatic stress. Being that first responders and essential workers can be negatively impacted by trauma work, vicarious trauma-informed care is paramount in supporting them and providing better service to those who they help. Although regular supervision, peer support, and an organizational culture validate vicarious trauma, Barbara’s FABULOUS framework is an acronym that focuses on self-efficacy and coping strategies. Through fun activities, participants will explore career resiliency, wellness, work-life integration, self-care and how to put their character strengths into practice. At the conclusion of this interactive program, participants will identify key protective factors in managing trauma-related employment stress based on evidence based practices and lessons learned.
