Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma have been described as “the cost of caring for others in emotional pain.” You cannot give of yourself daily and not be impacted by it in both your personal and professional lives. Knowing this, and having a common language among team members, can help to normalize the responses you may have to your work, and provide understanding and support. You will study the definitions of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, moral distress, moral residue, burnout and compassion satisfaction, and their impact on well-being, and well as the impact of trauma on the brain. We will discuss self-care and resilience strategies, including ways to bring self-care and well-being into the workplace. This can prevent the effects of Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma from creating a toxic workplace environment. A variety of handouts and activities will be provided to participants to complete in order to make the training personal for their own lives.
Registered attendees will also receive the recorded webinar emailed to them afterwards. This ensures those working on shift have the ability to review the helpful information when they have time.
