This online workshop combines interactive education about vicarious trauma specifically for staff and student leaders who support surviors of sexual violence. It also offers an experience of practicing vicarious trauma release supported by sound. Releasing Vicarious Trauma with Sound is a self/community care opportunity to pay attention to how we hold stress or vicarious trauma in the body and practice relaxing the nervous system. It is offered in a trauma-informed way that supports folks who are often survivors themselves supporting survivors.

The sounds from alchemy quartz crystal singing bowls can be impactful on the body and mind including:
- helping the mind to settle and the brain to enter a peaceful theta (or pre-sleep) state,
- the parasympathetic nervous system to engage/getting a break from being in a constant state of fight-flight-freeze,
- and the body to access the benefits of deep rest.
Learn more about the benefits of crystal singing bowls from Psychology Today, The Healing Power of Sound as Meditation.
