Counseling Supervision Series

Addressing the supervision needs of trauma counselors, case managers, and advocates

Counselors will look towards their supervisors for support to address their personal reactions to trauma stories, their experience of vicarious trauma symptoms, and the therapeutic needs of their clients. This training will review strategies for assessment of developmental needs, strategies for creating positive working alliances, and methods for addressing symptoms of vicarious trauma.
