Running on Empty: Compassion Fatigue, Secondary & Vicarious Trauma and Burnoutregistertraining

clock-cal There are currently no workshops schedule. Please check back soon.

Some of us hear difficult stories daily and are frequently exposed to traumatic details through our work.  We are not always able to help everyone who comes to us for help – the demand often outweighs what we can offer.  Have you felt the impact of this work on your own emotional well-being or on your personal life?

This evidence-based, highly interactive session, incorporates a combination of solo, small group and whole group activities.  Throughout the day, participants work through a personalized strategic plan that serves as a practical tool for dealing with the effects of their own compassion fatigue. Participants will learn practical strategies for identifying and dealing with the costs of caring.

Your time and funds are limited, so you want to make the best decisions within a limited timeframe and at low or no cost.

Don’t have time to implement a rigorous, by-the-book recruitment process? Don’t worry, we’ll also talk about where you can streamline the process and still make sure you have the right person to join your team and be legally compliant.
