The purpose of this project was to explore the impact of work-related trauma on direct care personnel who work with high-risk populations and to provide information about the recovery process. A literature review was conducted in order to obtain information about the prevalence and effects of trauma experienced at work and to investigate what evidence-based interventions are available for helping traumatized workers. A personal narrative was written for the purpose of contextualizing the information obtained in the literature review.
Although the occurrence of potentially traumatic events in the context of working with high-risk populations is not uncommon, there is a lack of available resources both for workers who experience trauma, and for supervisors and colleagues who try to assist these workers. This project provides a resource to social workers seeking to understand the needs of caregivers who have experienced trauma at work and ways of effectively assisting them during the recovery process.
