Event description

Description

Self-care for helping professionals is often encouraged and even mandated in ethics codes, but easily neglected. While work burnout can occur in any occupation, helping professionals can be at risk for burnout due to caring for the needs of hurting people. Helper fatigue (often called compassion fatigue) is a state of exhaustion experienced by those helping people in distress over time; it is an extreme state of tension and preoccupation with the suffering of others. Estimates for distress of workers in the health care field range from 21% to over 50% for those working with trauma clients.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. The key is understanding the difference between acute stress vs. the chronic stress cycle. First, a short and simple overview of neuroscience shows that true stress resilience takes more than typical stress reduction or self-care techniques. Next, we look at real life issues through self-tests, case studies, discussion, and research that explore problems with professional impairment, having poor boundaries with clients and co-workers, and potentially harming clients with unethical decisions and behavior. Last, you will learn tools to create a personal plan to prevent or heal helper fatigue. Get ready for an ethics course that can change how you see yourself and how you care for yourself to become a more effective and ethical helper.

Topics:

Ethical guidelines on helper fatigue & burnout
How impaired is too impaired?
Predictors of compassion fatigue vs. compassion satisfaction
Do you have fatigue and burnout?
How your stress habits could lead to impairment
