Victim Advocate's Guide to Wellness

Victim advocates work with the trauma of others on a daily basis. Helping people who suffer can be difficult, traumatic, and draining.

This book is your personal guide to living healthy and content while thriving in a trauma-related field. Here, you will discover powerful, real life tools for addressing and transforming vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue. You will learn about effective techniques for self-soothing, renewal, and transformation. You will explore breathing modalities, guided meditations, affirmations, gratitude fostering, and leaving work at work rituals to open a way to compassion satisfaction, personal wellness, and empowerment. You will be provided tools to implement, empower, and sustain an organizational culture of vicarious trauma prevention. Finally, you will find out how to maintain life balance by nurturing physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, personal, and professional aspects of yourself, in order to create a productive, full, and cherished life free of vicarious trauma.
