The personal & professional stressors of the last few years have placed counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and clinical social workers at elevated risk for compassion fatigue and burnout. Most clinicians learn very quickly that impairment and burnout can sneak up on us before we even realize it. During this workshop, participants will explore how compassion fatigue develops for clinicians, and its relationship with countertransference, the development of vicarious trauma, secondary traumatic stress, and burnout. During this workshop, participants will be encouraged to engage in an honest assessment of both their levels of wellness and impairment, as well as take a look at the effectiveness of their current wellness practices. Participants will enjoy engaging in interactive self-care activities that can lay a foundation for the building of motivation and a renewed commitment to wellness. Codes of Ethics related to professional impairment will be reviewed. Discussions will also include practical examples of lingering, unrecognized impairment related to the multiple negative effects of the last few years that continue to impede clinical effectiveness long past the time when things seem to be "back to normal". Finally, clinicians will begin the creation of a personalized wellness plan and demonstrate how to facilitate one for others.

This course is approved for 6 Core or 6 Ethics CEs.
