A survey of British clinical psychologists looking at the cognitive and behavioural effects of vicarious traumatisation, by anonymous postal questionnaire and telephone interview. The greatest cognitive disruptions were reported by female therapists with a low level of exposure to trauma related work. Whereas the greatest behavioural disruptions were reported by female therapists who had had additional training, had used personal therapy, limited their case load and had a high level of exposure to trauma related work. Psychologists cited informal and social support, recreational activities and supervision as the main ways in which they coped with trauma work. People moving on and helping people to make major changes in their lives, were described as the most rewarding aspects of trauma work.
