Vicarious trauma is a real risk for service providers, often compounded by long hours and heavy caseloads. How do these individuals learn to care for themselves, to maintain their well-being and effectiveness while in positions of service and care for others. In the United States, the CBR Project offers trainings for society’s “unsung heroes” – staff providing invaluable care to vulnerable and marginalized members of our society. These evidence-based trainings give social workers, humanitarian aid workers, journalists, lawyers, social activists, and senior managers in these fields the chance to decompress while learning practical skills to improve their ability to manage chronic stress and avoid burnout. Funding provides scholarships for direct service professionals to participate in our trainings.
