Event description


Managing trauma exposure and compassion fatigue in the health care professional - what works? Best practices

Webinar Description

Compassion fatigue refers to the profound emotional and physical exhaustion that all of us can develop over time while working in health care environments: complex cases, large volume of work, chronicity, the wear and tear of the job, challenging patients and colleagues - all of these can contribute to developing compassion fatigue.

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?
