Resisting Burnout and Vicarious Trauma: Collective Care and Solidarity


YouthREX, in partnership with the York Research Chair in Youth and Contexts of Inequity held by Dr. Uzo Anucha, invites you to join us for an online Teach-In with Vikki Reynolds, consultant, facilitator, and community worker!

Together with Vikki, we will explore how we can foster solidarity and justice-doing as central to our collective care and resistance:

  • How do we hold young people at the centre of our work?
  • How can we avoid moving too far into negativity, cynicism, and disconnection – or into intimate, boundary-transgressing relationships that can be heroic and enmeshed?
  • How do we resist burnout in ways that enable us to stay alive in our work with youth?

When we can enact collective ethics and collective care, we can work in solidarity; we need our colleagues to act as our allies, with the moral courage to offer us critique and shoulder each other up in ways that make us most useful.

PS: Hope you can join us online “live”! We apologize that this Teach-In will not be recorded.
