Shew, Allison M.
ProQuest LLC, Psy.D. Dissertation, The University of the Rockies
The goal of this study was to determine the effectiveness of vicarious resiliency training. Data was collected from 25 professionals who are at high risk for developing vicarious trauma and who attended a 3-day resiliency training presented by Henry Tobey in Denver, Colorado. A pre, post, and follow-up design were employed where all participants served as the control and experimental groups. Data was collected through questionnaires that were used to address the current need for evidence-based vicarious trauma interventions. At the four-week follow-up, 71% of participants reported positive change in their symptoms. The findings of this study show that resiliency training is a potent way of mitigating the effects of vicarious trauma. Further, it supports that resiliency training promotes awareness of vicarious trauma as a means to reduce the consequences of vicarious trauma.
