Course Description

Compassion fatigue is the emotional residue that tends to affect individuals in helping professions, caregiving roles, or those who are empathetic. This is more than just being stressed and overwhelmed, it can lead to feeling worn, exhausted, being unable to empathize with others, and dreading to go to work. Depending on the nature of your job or the roles you have in your personal life, you may be more vulnerable to compassion fatigue.

This is an interactive training that will use lectures, videos, polls, and small group discussions to explore the relationship between stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout and their impact on our personal and professional lives. As a result, you will leave with increased self-awareness being able to identify if you are being impacted by compassion fatigue or burnout, and strategies to combat them and increase your resiliency and wellness.
