Event description

Description

Does your work entail significant or ongoing stress? Have you ever found yourself feeling completely exhausted as a caregiver or traumatized by another’s pain? We invite you to join us for a practical, interactive, best practice training to support your own resilience.

Compassion Without Fatigue: Mindfulness, Boundaries, and the Practice of Empathy

Participants will gain a conceptual framework for:

  • the differences between secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout
  • ways we develop secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout—and how to recover
  • the relationship between mindfulness, boundaries, empathy, and resilience

Participants will walk away with protective strategies:

  • Mindfulness practices
  • Tools to reinforce intra-personal boundaries
  • Rapid Resets to use when triggered in the moment
  • Practicing empathy as a skill (vs. feeling) to protect your emotional reserves
  • Rituals of Release for personal vitality

Resources include:

  • Bibliography with primary sources
  • Screening/assessment tools
  • Secondary trauma risk factors and protective factors
  • Symptoms of compassion fatigue
  • Red flags for burnout
  • Benefits of mindfulness
  • Suggestions for further study

This training provides three (3) contact hours, CEU applicable for most professions.
