Walking the Walk:
Compassion Fatigue Workshop
Compassion Fatigue refers to the profound emotional and physical exhaustion that helping professionals and caregivers can develop over the course of their career. It is a gradual erosion of all the things that keep us connected to others: our empathy, our hope, and of course our compassion - not only for others but also for ourselves.
Throughout the session participants work through a personalized strategic plan that serves as a practical tool for dealing with the effects of their own compassion fatigue. Intended audience: Helping professionals, mental health professionals, nurses, social workers, physicians, volunteers, clergy, emergency workers, correctional workers,
teachers, school principals, EMS and law enforcement. Everyone!
