Counselors in all clinical settings work with clients who have experienced trauma to some extent in their lifetime. When individuals who have experienced trauma seek counseling services, counselors are exposed to their clients’ traumatic experiences. This increased exposure, in turn, increases the counselors’ vulnerability of taking on their clients’ traumatic events. This poster will provide research results on maximizing resiliency to prevent vicarious trauma and subthreshold PTSD in professional counselors.
