Compassion Fatigue Resilience Series
Part 2 of the Compassion Fatigue Resilience series focuses on reframing. Living with fidelity to our purpose and in alignment with our principles is equally important in developing and maintaining our professional quality of life. Trauma makes us fearful, and being fearful we mistrust each other. Mistrust leads to anger, and then we find ourselves violating our own values, the same ones that brought us to mental health and healthcare. Although we might want things to be different from what they are, resilience arises from acceptance of the world as it is, focusing instead on what meaning we make of it for ourselves. This workshop will lead participants in exercises to help them reframe and move forward within their roles with intentionality and perceptual maturation.
- Define secondary traumatic stress, burnout and compassion fatigue
- Describe causes and effects of stress
- Describe and practice techniques for reframing
