Kuʻikahi’s Brown Bag Talk Series
This month’s Brown Bag Talk features speaker is Elizabeth Kent on the topic “Vicarious Trauma: Techniques for Coping & Resiliency.”
“Those in the helping professions many become affected by other people’s traumatic stress and feel compassion fatigue,” says Kent. “This interactive talk session is designed for neutrals and other professionals working with people who have witnessed or experienced trauma.”
In this talk, we’ll review the symptoms of vicarious trauma, discuss successful coping techniques, and design an action plan for resiliency.
Elizabeth Kent, J.D., has helped people and institutions find solutions to sticky problems for over 30 years. She has practiced commercial law and worked in Hawai‘i state government, including the Department of Human Services, the University of Hawai‘i, and the Judiciary’s Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution. Currently, she is a facilitator and mediator and provides training in conflict resolution.
