Compassion Fatigue in York County
January 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Compassion fatigue is characterized by a gradual lessening of compassion over time, resulting from a combination of burnout and secondary traumatic stress related to vicarious traumatization from repeated exposure to traumatic material.
The objectives include:
• Define and understand burnout, vicarious/secondary trauma, and compassion fatigue
• Differentiate burnout vs. compassion fatigue
• Utilize assessment tools to understand personal levels of compassion satisfaction as well as compassion fatigue
• Understand protective factors and develop a plan of self care
The training will use a mix of lecture, individual and small group activities, and video.
