This session will provide the results of a study that identified awareness of privilege and oppression and social justice commitment as significant predictors of vicarious trauma for a sample of Black college students. Social isolation was not found to be a significant moderator between awareness of privilege and oppression and vicarious trauma, or between social justice commitment and vicarious trauma. Implications and recommendations for counselors and counselor educators will be provided.
Attendees will learn the predictors and moderators for vicarious trauma in a sample of Black undergraduate students.
Attendees will dialogue and be provided directed implications and recommendations for providing services to Black students and clients in the current sociopolitical climate.
Attendees will learn strategies to advocate within our professional organization for the training of future counselors as a result of the outcomes of this study.
