Walking the Walk: Creative Tools for Transforming Compassion Fatigue and Secondary Trauma
April 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
“There is now over two decades of research proving that working in high stress, trauma-exposed professions such as behavioral health carries elements of risk to the staff. Compassion fatigue has been called “a disorder that affects those who do their work well” (Figley, 1995). The level of compassion fatigue, secondary trauma and burnout can ebb and flow from one day to the next. Using the most recent research in the field, this interactive, evidence-based and trauma-informed presentation will offer new creative approaches, resources and hands-on tools for maintaining health and resiliency as staff in the helping professions. This workshop is interactive with the use of small group discussions, videos, role play and self-reflection. No cost to attend; registration is required by April 15, 2021– email Naomi@cncaa.info. (A confirmation email will be sent to you at a later date with the zoom link)”
