Compassion Without Fatigue: 3-part Webinar Series

Presented by Roxanne Pendleton & Andrea Dalton
Center for Trauma Informed Innovation at Truman Medical Centers

Does your work entail significant or ongoing stress? Have you ever found yourself feeling completely exhausted as a caregiver or traumatized by another’s pain? We invite you to join us for a practical, interactive, best practice training to support your own resilience.

Anyone who cares for others can experience compassion fatigue. Participants will first review the differences between compassion fatigue, secondary trauma, and burnout, including paths to healing. Then, participants will explore a variety of protective practices including mindfulness, intrapersonal boundaries, and tools to intentionally support personal and professional vitality.

This interactive training will be in 3 sections, meeting weekly on January 14, 21, and 28 from 11am-12pm Central time via Zoom. Please plan to join with audio and camera to enhance your engagement in the learning environment. We recommend attending all 3 sessions, as they will build upon each other. Sessions will not be recorded. Certificates of attendance will be provided upon request for those attending all 3 sessions.

This session is offered at no charge to participants through the Show-Me Hope Crisis Counseling Program.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Participants will delineate secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout
  • Participants will identify ways to intentionally care for themselves before, during, and after stressful situations
  • Participants will identify ways to intentionally care for others without depleting their own energy reserves
