Description

Beyond Self-Care & Work-Life Balance: Vicarious Trauma, Stress, Burnout & Compassion Fatigue for Socially Conscious Helping Professionals

Helping others through their stress, pain, trauma and suffering is central to much of the work that we helping professionals provide. This makes burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion and empathy fatigue all too common "occupational hazards" for social service, mental health, medical and educational service providers.

Additionally, as socially conscious helpers doing this challenging work, while also existing within these current social-political realities, our propensity for Political Trauma Stress Anxiety and Oppression Fatigue is magnified.

~ Assess your current levels of stress, burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue. (Assessment tools provided.)

~ Discuss the causes, differences and signs of burnout, vicarious trauma, political trauma stress, oppression fatigue, and empathy and compassion fatigue

~ Explore how our liberal well-intentioned helping and fix it approaches and unchecked privilege can increase our burnout symptoms and put us in professional ethical jeopardy

~ Learn 5 surprising proactive strategies that your workplace and you can incorporate to reduce burnout and increase resiliency

~ Learn the 6 proven steps to healing and recovery from burnout, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue

~ Explore the brain science behind how work and personal stressors impact us and simple life-changing immediate solutions

~ Create your own personal and professional Sustainable Self-care and Wellness Plan. Choose from over 50 free and researched ideas. (These ideas and methods are specifically geared towards helping professionals.)

CEUs: Depending on your profession, you may be able to receive CEUs. CEU forms to submit to your boards will be available. (Typically, 3.5 to 4 CEUs have been granted. Check with your board to confirm your board's particular requirements for acceptance, CEU allotment for workshop hours provided, etc.)

If the option you request doesn't show up when you try to register, that means that option has been sold out.

General points about this training:
(1) In this training (as in all of Irene's workshops and trainings), our diversity, in all of its forms, is nurtured, valued and celebrated; including, though not limited, to our sexual, affectional, gender, spiritual, racial, class, age, educational, employment, size, ability and familial differences.
This training is a non-racist, queer-affirming and sex-positive space.
People who can join in these intentions are welcome.

(2) This workshop will incorporate lecture, story-telling, group discussion, personal reflection time, and (optional) personal sharing. Folders with hand-outs, worksheets and a lengthy resource bibliography, as well as healthy snacks, water and tea, will be provided.
