Trauma is prevalent across multiple settings and populations.  Counseling survivors of childhood abuse, sexual assault, work-related violence, political torture, and natural disasters may result in vicarious trauma or other deleterious effects for counselors.  Supervisees counseling survivors of trauma have distinct needs.  Additionally, responses to traumatic experiences are informed by a person's own cultural context, life experience, and coping skills. The various effects of counseling survivor populations on supervisees will be explored.  Attendees will learn to recognize vicarious trauma and share specific strategies to help supervisees mitigate effects of repeated exposure to trauma. The concept of vicarious resilience will also be discussed.
