About This NYSED Social Work Board Approved Training (4-CEUs)
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. Additionally, we will address how positive coping strategies: seeking supervision, training, creating a supportive work environment, personal diet and practical exercise can strengthen our stride towards an optimal work-life balance. 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.
