Description

Stress, Burnout & Compassion Fatigue for Socially Conscious Helping Professionals: Sustainable Wellness & Self-Care

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 oppression fatigue is magnified

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

~Learn the brain science behind how stress impacts us physically, emotionally, and psychologically and what we can do about it

~Assess our own personal and professional resiliency capacity and our levels of stress, burnout, vicarious trauma, empathy fatigue, and compassion fatigue

~Create personal and professional sustainable self-care and wellness plans. These plans are specifically geared towards helping professionals.

Facilitated by: Irene Greene MSED / Greene Growth & Training LLC (More information below.)
