Compassion fatigue has become a familiar but not necessarily well-understood term during the pandemic. Taking the time to understand the elements that comprise compassion fatigue and their direct impact on a person’s physical, emotional, and psychological well-being can assist a person in developing effective strategies to address stress in their lives before it becomes overwhelming. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about compassion fatigue and ways to minimize its impact by building resiliency through research-based practices.

After attending this session, participants can expect to:

  1. Recognize the symptoms of compassion fatigue and how it impacts an individual physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
  2. Understand the difference between compassion fatigue and burnout and how to take steps to address the different conditions. 
  3. Learn simple, research-based resiliency-building practices to begin using immediately.
