Description

Giving all you have: Tools and Strategies to deal with Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma.

Everyone who is in the helping field will at some point in their career experience various levels of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, burnout, moral distress, frustration and stress which could lead to people becoming negative, cynical, avoiding clients, calling in sick often, contributing to declining morale and leaving the profession. With increase in caseloads, budget cut backs and an increase in client needs, how do we take care of ourselves? Do you spend all day trying to provide solutions and solve problems for others, but are too tired to do anything after 6 p.m.? Are there solutions for people to help themselves? Who would have thought that those in the helping field would be affected by the countless stories heard across the desk?

What will be discussed?

  • What is the cost of caring?
  • Symptoms and strategies of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.
