Supporting Our Community's Wellbeing: Free Training on Vicarious Trauma in collaboration with MasterWord

Hey TWB community! :wave:

We’ve got some exciting news to share about a brand new, free training opportunity that’s aimed at supporting our amazing volunteer language professionals.

In collaboration with MasterWord, we’re proud to present a training session that can make a real difference in your work, especially if you deal with traumatic content or challenging situations. We understand 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.

But here’s the good news: together with Ludmila Golovine, President and CEO of MasterWord, we’re going to delve 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.

So, what’s in it for you? Keep reading to find out! :star2:

In this upcoming training session, you’ll gain valuable tools to help you identify and analyze triggers that can lead to vicarious trauma. But that’s not all! You’ll also learn practical steps to prevent and mitigate the effects of vicarious trauma. :shield:

And here’s the best part: you don’t have to be working directly with traumatic content to join in. This training is open to everyone who wants to understand and learn more about this important topic.

Save the Date

Mark your calendars, folks! :date: The training is scheduled for October 27th at 3 pm CEST. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enhance your skills and well-being.
To secure your spot, simply register here. And guess what? You can even submit your questions in advance.

Accessibility Matters

At TWB, we’re committed to inclusivity. That’s why we’ll have American English Sign Language interpreters available during the webinar. If you need sign language interpreters in other languages, please let us know by replying to this thread. We’re here to support you in every way possible.

Thanks for being a part of this experience, and we can’t wait to see you at the training session. Stay tuned for updates, and feel free to share your thoughts and questions in this thread.
