Week 6: Countertransference, Secondary Traumatic Stress Disorder, Vicarious Traumatization, Burnout, and Wellness Among Human Services Professionals
Have you ever misdirected feelings of anger or resentment toward someone due to a related yet different experience? Have you ever watched coverage of a crisis event on television and been moved to tears, even though you did not experience its effects first hand? Or had friends confide in you about difficult issues in their lives so much that you began to feel like you had experienced their problems as well? Have you ever felt overwhelmed, disillusioned, and frustrated with your responsibilities at work, perhaps complaining of feeling "burned out"? These common experiences may provide you a basis for understanding the complex dynamics of four important topics in the field of crisis and intervention: countertransference, secondary traumatic stress disorder, vicarious traumatization, and burnout. This week, you explore how and why human services professionals experience countertransference, secondary traumatic stress disorder, vicarious traumatization, and burnout. In addition, you consider wellness strategies that can be used to prevent burnout.
