Compassion Fatigue 2-Part Webinar

Compassion Fatigue 2 part webinar series

Date: Tuesday, August 6th AND Tuesday, August 20th

Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Central Time

Compassion fatigue increases stress and results in lost productivity, staff turnover, and overall poor organizational health. Professionals in behavioral health or “helping profession” settings are at risk for developing secondary traumatic stress, depression, and/or burnout as they attend to others’ needs. Priorities for clinicians, recovery support specialists, and caregivers are to interact with their clients to promote and model healthy coping behaviors. However, professionals often ignore their own needs and warning signs associated with compassion fatigue in the workforce.

This two-part webinar series will discuss how compassion fatigue was first identified and the importance of studying it, how to recognize warning signs, and why this topic is relevant to everyone. By the end of the series, participants will be better prepared to identify and manage symptoms of compassion fatigue. 

1. Describe compassion fatigue, including burnout and secondary traumatic stress
2. Identify and how to self-practice two self-compassion skills 
3. Discuss tips for preventing compassion fatigue
4. Understand how to use the ProQOL scale for individual, organization, and supervisory detection of compassion fatigue
