Training – Wellbeing and Sustainability for Primary Prevention Practitioners
Wellbeing and Sustainability for Primary Prevention Practitioners
When working and advocating for the prevention of violence against women and family violence, progression of gender equality and towards achieving social justice, often we sit with and process discomfort about the world around us while keeping the fire in our bellies.
This training will equip participants with the tools to recognise and understand vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, moral distress and burnout and how to prevent it in the future.
Training elements cover wellbeing and sustaining selves and others through work and advocacy that requires generational change; including calling out disrespectful behaviour.
This training is open to professionals and community including prevention of violence against women and family violence practitioners, community advocates and professionals in social justice, university students advocating for change, volunteers, and professionals where primary prevention isn’t their core role.
This evidence based training provides an opportunity for participants to:
- Increase understanding of, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, moral distress and burnout
- Develop and build on understanding of vicarious resilience, moral resilience, compassion satisfaction and vicarious post-traumatic growth.
- Apply a resilience framework and explore organisational and individual strategies that cultivate resilience
- Reflect on their prevention advocacy and work and how to sustain this
