We understand that too often the human service providers are struck by compassion fatigue and are continually exposed to secondary trauma. We are sensitive to the crisis responders, therapists, and professionals who work so hard to provide services in the recovery field and to crime victims. This in no way excludes those of us who face day to day stress in our professional and home lives. Therefore, this workshop is designed to educate you on the process, development, and symptoms of compassion fatigue so that you can recognize the warning signs with increased awareness. Our program will teach you how to prevent compassion fatigue and also treat it by developing your own self-care plan. Furthermore, learn about the do’s and don’ts of recovery, avoid the menu of misconceptions, and discover how to take positive action to change your environment.
SCS is available to host compassion fatigue workshops. Please explore our calendar for annual events which usually run September or October of each year. Your agency may sponsor a Compassion Fatigue Workshop, and we do all the work. We bring the complete program - either full day or half day - coordinate all presenters, materials and handouts. Topics listed above are explored in detail with your staff and agency members. CEUs are awarded. We even bring the snacks and drinks. Contact our office for complete details.
