Combatting Compassion Fatigue
Riley County Public Works Conference Room
This event has already passed by. Sorry.
This training will explore potential impacts of caring roles as it relates to “burnout”, compassion fatigue, and secondary trauma. Participants will review the activities they engage in for self-care, but this training will also take a deeper look at how personal, professional, and cultural factors create barriers in how we think that prevent us from setting healthy boundaries and using our self-care activities. This training will include some personal practice of a few strategies to address these thoughts, will help participants assess their current risk for compassion fatigue and secondary trauma, and will help participants create individualized plans for how to fully engage in self-care within their lives.
1. To identify the roots and symptoms of compassion fatigue and secondary trauma
2. To differentiate between compassion fatigue and secondary trauma and how to intervene with each
3. To identify personal barriers to self-care, both in our external environments and in our inner cognitive processes
4. To create personalized self-care plans that address not only our self-care behaviors, but also healthy boundary setting and self-affirmation within our thoughts
