Compassion Fatigue: Heal Thyself

Course Description

Compassion Fatigue: Heal Thyself explores how vicarious stress and trauma can impact a clinician’s emotional health. Consideration is given to the importance of being mindful of one’s personal well-being. If we are compromised with stress and experience “burn-out,” we potentially place our clients at risk of receiving less than quality support. Focus will be placed on identifying signs of secondary trauma and self-care strategies for stress reduction. Moreover this course explores sleep deprivation and proper sleep hygiene: understanding the relationship between our nutrition, diet, exercise, and circadian rhythms. Cognitive behavioral strategies will also be reviewed. Lastly, the efficacy of these integral therapy practices as a part of stress reduction for patients in clinical treatment will be considered in conjunction with other psychodynamic and behavioral modalities.
