Event description

Description

There is now over two decades of research proving that working in high stress, trauma-exposed professions such as community mental health, law enforcement and health care carries elements of risk to the care provider: compassion fatigue, secondary trauma and burnout can take a cumulative tolls on us as individuals and as teams. What can professionals do to protect themselves from the difficult stories that they work with on a regular basis, limited resources and high volume of work, while still remaining effective and compassionate?

This interactive, evidence-based and trauma-informed presentation is suitable for novice and experienced participants alike. Using the most recent research in the field, it will explore assumptions about compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma, the organizational and personal barriers that professionals face in their daily lives, and offers new and creative approaches to transforming these occupational hazards.

Participants will learn:
•Key Factors that increase risks of compassion fatigue, burnout and secondary trauma
•Early intervention strategies
•Workplace strategies: what works?
