Fort McMurray Early Years Coalition - Compassion Fatigue Training
Wed, 7 December 2016, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM MST
The Fort McMurray Early Years Coalition is pleased to announce we will be hosting a Compassion Fatigue training specifically for Early Years Providers.
Join facilitator Charmaine Hammond in understanding the signs, symptoms and relief of compassion fatigue.
Charmaine will identify how to deal with the increased demands for services being put on organizations while at the same time supporting those working with clients. Compassion Fatigue simply put is “fatigue, emotional distress, or apathy resulting from the constant demands of caring for others or from constant appeals from charities” and can put staff and volunteers at risk of becoming deeply impacted by the continuing stress of meeting the often overwhelming needs of client and community. Compassion fatigue can have a significant impact on a workplace if not identified and addressed. It can impact quality of service, job satisfaction, employee retention, employee’s emotional and physical health, and the workplace environment by decreasing productivity and workplace culture. Healthy resilient people make healthy resilient teams!
This workshop will help you:
Recognize and identify the signs of compassion fatigue
Set healthy boundaries and stay true to your mandate
Implement a series of self-care and team care strategies to prevent compassion fatigue
Develop your own resilience program at work and for your personal life
