Key Terms

In-house: Your team leader or Manager provides organisational supervision.

Vicarious trauma (or Secondary trauma): A feeling of being traumatised, shocked from a clients (own) story.

Burnout: Happens when there is no supervision or support in your work, where there may be high work hours, very little timeout, sleep. Your ability to work effectively and efficiently is less, feelings of depression, hyper vigilance, tiredness, distraction, detachment are increasing.

Transference: Feeling as if the situation has happened before or your client reminds you of someone (in your past) you (didn’t like), and you are feeling the same feelings towards the client.

Co-transference: The client reminds you of someone in your past, but you also remind the client of someone in his/her past that she did/didn’t like and that had an effect on his/her life. Parallel process: When what is happening in your client’s life is happening in yours, eg: you are both having marital problems. You may become biased and lose objectivity because you sympathise with the client. It is important to stay focused on what your role is.
