This special issue of the Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment will emphasize self-care practices for clinicians and researchers. Vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout are serious conditions related specifically to professionals serving clients in trauma-related situations.
Researchers examining catastrophes and trauma-related events are also susceptible to secondary traumatic stress. The guest editors seek submission of manuscripts highlighting innovative self-care practices.
Articles reporting evidenced-based self-care practices, new innovative models, and case-studies are welcome. First-person practice notes from clinicians and teaching notes from educators are also requested.
Authors interested in submitting manuscripts for this special issue are encouraged to contact the guest editors by phone or by e-mail prior to the submission deadline to discuss ideas for manuscripts.
Further guidelines for submitting manuscripts can be found here.
