Hi Robin, thanks for all of your great tips! As part of cultivating healing and also staying connected to self-awareness - I also work with helping professionals to foster a reflective writing practice (for those interested in this self-nurturing tool). There is some great research on Writing to Heal Trauma (and it can also be used to heal vicarious trauma) written by James Pennebaker. Wishing you wellness and fulfillment in your life and work, Lynda

There are strong mechanisms that contribute to natural recovery from traumatic events. Many trauma experts (Staab, Foa, Friedman) agree that the psychological outcome of our community as a whole will be resilience, not psychopathology. For most survivors, symptoms of fear, anxiety, re-experiencing, urges to avoid, and hyper-arousal, if present, will gradually decrease over time.
