— When Compassion Runs Out —

The Fatigued Soul

Regardless of how we end up in service to others, our experience teaches us that in our humanness, we have limits to our compassion. Self- care is an important component to maintain compassion and empathy with clients. Participants will leave this interactive, skill-building workshop with knowledge and tools that will enable them to identify and work through compassion fatigue to be more effective in their professional lives. Ways to develop effective practices, maintain, and sustain personal practices will be explored. Activities, case studies and discussions complement this workshop, as well as experiential exercises. Disclosure of experiences is voluntary.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Differentiate compassion fatigue from stress and “burnout”
  • Identify components and characteristics of compassion fatigue
  • Identify one of two three-tier plans to implement (prevention, disruption, reduction or full, half, empty tank)
