Victim Advocate Burnout
Featured Speaker (Bio)
Victim Advocates choose their professional roles because of their passion to help victims of crime through the aftermath of victimization. The same passion that leads them to choose this career path can also lead to Advocate burnout. Please join us for a day of training on practical ways to manage the natural stress associated with advocating for victims of crime and violence. This training will be held at the District Attorney's Office in Philadelphia, PA.
Topics that will be addressed include:
- Individual differences in tolerance of stress
- Factors which contribute to burnout
- Physical, emotional, and psychological impacts of adverse stress
- The costs of burnout at work
- The costs of burnout at home
- Methods to reduce stress and anxiety
- Assessment of personal resilience
- Planning for good self care
