Compassion Fatigue

Code: HEAL1215

Course description

Compassion Fatigue has been called "the cost of caring" for helping professionals, and its effects can have lasting negative consequences on our health, wellbeing, and work performance. Those helpers who are exposed to others' trauma and suffering and who work under stressful conditions are especially vulnerable to developing compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and moral distress. While there are structural elements to these problems, there are also practices that individuals can put into place to lower their risk, or to recover if they've already been affected. This course will teach practical strategies for self-reflection and self-care that will build participants' resilience.
