ISCRR currently has a number of projects underway relating to vicarious trauma in the workplace. We have since noticed that vicarious trauma as a concept is not widely understood. As a result, we have produced this explainer video which gives a brief description of the differences between direct trauma and vicarious trauma and explains why an opportunity exists for organisations to prevent the development of vicarious trauma in their employees.

This article and video content was written by Carmen Schroder, ISCRR Research Officer. The video was produced by Blaire Dobiecki, ISCRR Research Communications Officer.
