Compassion Fatigue

11 May, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Caring can hurt…when we provide caring support for others (personally or professionally, people or animals) without intentionally and adequately taking care of ourselves real and significant distress is likely to occur. This may take the form of self-destructive behaviors used as a means to cope with the distress, lack of energy for basic self-care, and a range of damaging emotional states such as loneliness and despair. Fortunately there IS something that can be done. Compassion Fatigue is not a “natural consequence” of caregiving. It does require practice and effort, but the steps toward personal well-being ARE doable. Learn practical strategies to help you help yourself, as well as ways to reframe your role and work.
