There is a lot we can do to address vicarious trauma personally and in our organizations. Witnessing or hearing stories of traumatic or overwhelming experiences is hard for our nervous systems and minds to process. Our bodies keep the score and this often impacts our physical or mental health, relationships, and ability to show up for our clients. 

Develop restorative and self-healing practices you can use throughout your day to care for your nervous system. Create organizational cultures that practice self-care and co-care. Hear stories of organizations who are finding ways to successfully address vicarious trauma. Take an intergenerational approach to creating self-healing and resilient communities.
