Topics will include: Navigation of the challenges of supervision when supervisees are working with trauma survivors. An overview of trauma will be provided, with the intention that this overview will lend itself to psycho-educational tools for supervisees to use with clients. We will explore appropriate interventions for different stages and types of trauma in the context of supervisees’ work settings, and with the use of case examples, incorporating a strengths-based perspective. Vicarious traumatization will be discussed.
