Compassion Fatigue Resilience Series
Part 3 of the Compassion Fatigue Resilience series focuses on self-care. Self-care gives us the fuel we need to be effective within our formal, professional roles. We cannot take care of others if we are not taking care of ourselves. Trauma makes us fearful, and being fearful we can mistrust each other. Mistrust leads to shame, and we may find ourselves withdrawing or reacting in anger. Self-care is about nourishing your mind and body and accessing an important source of strength: each other. This workshop will explore different elements of self-care and help participants build strategies for ongoing self-care tactics to enhance personal and professional resilience.
- Define secondary traumatic stress, burnout and compassion fatigue
- Describe the negative and positive impacts of our work
- Describe and practice techniques for self-care
