Pouring From An Empty Cup – Addressing Compassion Fatigue, Vicarious Trauma, and Burnout – Building Resiliency
Purpose: This webinar course, Canine Professional Compassion Fatigue, provides information and strategies to assist those in all helping professions and volunteers work to identify and address Compassion Fatigue, Vicarious Trauma, and Burnout in an effort to ensure that they enjoy meaningful, rejuvenating work in the demanding role as helper.
Course Info: Deep emotional and physical exhaustion is a hallmark of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burnout resulting in a shift in a caregiver’s, volunteer’s or helping professional’s sense of hope and optimism about the future and the value of their work in the home, as a volunteer, or professional. The level of fatigue a helper experiences can ebb and flow from one day to the next, and even very healthy helpers with optimal life/work balance and self-care strategies can experience a higher than normal level of fatigue when they are overloaded, are working with a lot of traumatic content, or find they are suddenly overwhelmed with situations that are chronically in crisis.
This course defines compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burnout then provides detailed information on the impact of, and solutions for, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burnout for caregivers, volunteers, and helping professionals.
