Author: Megan C. Walsh
Description: Master’s Thesis, Smith College School for Social Work. This qualitative research project focuses on the experience of vicarious trauma and resilience among therapists with refugee clients. The author finds through interviews that therapists with refugee clients are often affected emotionally by their client’s reports of trauma, and that they successfully employ coping mechanisms. These findings support other research that therapists may experience vicarious trauma and resilience.
