This webinar on Preventing Vicarious Trauma (VT), Compassion Fatigue (CF), and Burnout (BO) in Forensic Mental Health is presented by Dr. Gianni Pirelli.
In this webinar, Dr. Pirelli address the related, yet distinct concepts of vicarious trauma (VT), compassion fatigue (CF), and burnout (BO) within the context of forensic mental health. After providing a general overview of each, he will speak directly to forensic mental health – namely, how these issues can impact students, trainees, early career professionals (ECPs), supervisors and instructors, and practitioners. Dr. Pirelli will also use the practice of forensic psychology as an example, addressing relevant research on VT, CF, and BO within the context of criminal, civil, and administrative matters as well as in treatment, teaching, and research contexts. Then, he will highlight four (4) areas of consideration for preventing VT, CF, and BO in the forensic arena: (a) identifying potential risk factors; (b) recognizing, developing, and strengthening protective factors; (c) overcoming self-care and treatment barriers; and (d) identifying and engaging in therapeutic interventions.
The webinar is appropriate for those new to the field of forensic mental health, as well as experienced professionals who are looking for an overview or refresher forensic mental health training and practice.
