Workshop Description

 

Research indicates that the percentage of mental health workers experiencing compassion fatigue may be as high as 67%. Compassion fatigue occurs when mental health providers absorb trauma and emotional stresses of others, creates secondary traumatic stress in the helper. Symptoms include detachment, depersonalization, decreased physical health, depression, anxiety, and impaired memory. Compassion fatigue negatively affects the ability to provide adequate clinical care, and steels inspire passion, drive, and enthusiasm for therapeutic work from providers as tedious, unpleasant thoughts take over.

 

In this workshop, Mental Health Care Providers will:

 

·      Learn how compassion fatigue is related to stress and how stress affects the mind, the body, and clinical work.

·      Grasp why it is important to prioritize self-care to prevent and combat compassion fatigue.

·      Know how to fit self-care into the busiest schedule.

·      Experience three simple tools for inner peace that they can begin using immediately.

·      Receive access to additional self-care tools to help prevent and combat compassion fatigue.
