THE COST OF CARING:

Compassion Fatigue and the Impact of Working with High Risk Children and Families

~ Presenter Carol Tiggelaar

Working with those who have been exposed to violence and trauma can impact the way we think, feel and (re)act, yet there is little information about how to mitigate the effects of this impact. This workshop will introduce participants to the similarities and differences between burnout, compassion fatigue, secondary and vicarious trauma and will offer information about how to identify these in themselves and others. Participants will learn about successful self-care strategies, for the work and home environment, as well as ideas for how to combat the “self-care pitfalls” we all tend to fall into. This workshop will have hands on stress busting stations. Come prepared to participate.
