Compassion fatigue has been described as the 'cost of caring" for others. It is an occupational hazard. This means, that almost everyone who empathises with their patients or clients will eventually develop it to some degree. This workshop explores compassion fatigue, its impacts and better strategies to manage it, so that you can be the most resilient in your work.

This workshop will cover:

  • Definitions of compassion fatigue and the difference between burnout, vicarious trauma and secondary trauma
  • How to recognise the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue
  • Risk factors that trigger compassion fatigue in your practice or workplace

What previous participants said:

"Extremely engaging and useful workshop - everyone should attend this!"

"A really helpful mix of theory, experience and personal anecdotes, with sufficient opportunity for personal reflection on ideas shared."
