:earth_africa: Who Should Attend?

Whether you’re a translator, therapist, healthcare provider, or educator, if you offer assistance during or after traumatic events, this webinar is for you!

In this session, we’ll address crucial questions such as:

  • How does experiencing trauma affect a helper’s ability to offer aid?
  • What strategies can mitigate the impact of trauma exposure on helpers?
  • How can helpers handle their own unresolved trauma when triggered during the act of helping?

This upcoming webinar will explore the impact of trauma. It will address questions like how a helper’s own past trauma can affect their ability to assist others, and how to manage the emotional toll of witnessing suffering. The webinar will also offer strategies based on recent theories to help these dedicated individuals continue thriving in their important roles.

A few months ago we collaborated with MasterWord and presented a training session to support the TWB community. We did this because we know that some of the projects we handle from our nonprofit partners can be emotionally taxing, and sometimes, life itself presents us with difficult realities to navigate. Together with Ludmila Golovine, President and CEO of MasterWord, delved into the topic of vicarious trauma. This phenomenon can impact your performance and overall well-being when you’re exposed to or internalize someone else’s trauma.

We care about your well-being. That’s why we’re offering this free 90-minute training for TWB Community members. Learn about vicarious trauma, a natural response to witnessing another’s trauma, pain, or suffering - something humanitarian translators might encounter throughout their careers.
