Counselors are taught to place themselves in the client’s position to better understand their feelings and thoughts. Consequently, hearing extreme details of human distress can cause trauma to counselors, resulting in vicarious trauma. It is essential for counselor educators to identify measures that will lessen the effects of vicarious trauma in counselors. This presentation will provide information on techniques in supervision that are associated with lessening the effects of vicarious trauma.
