Overcoming Compassion Fatigue
Overcoming Compassion Fatigue: The Cost of Caring
Those who are called into serving others, in all their various forms, will eventually experience compassion fatigue and, if not properly addressed, may lead to burnout. We start our service off with enthusiasm and idealism without realizing just how tough a journey we have ahead. Feeling overwhelmed by unmet needs, dreading going to work, feeling exhausted all the time, and feeling that you’re drowning in the suffering of others; are some of the signs of compassion fatigue.
Most helpers don’t do a very good job of following through with their self-care. Even when they do, they often find it lacking, and therefore push it off to the side. Working wellness into your daily life can often add additional stress. And so, the cycle goes.
In this one-day seminar, you will start to understand how stress gets stuck in your bodies and you will find practical ways to complete the stress cycle so you can become more resilient.
The seminar is divided into psychoeducation and experiential learning. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the expressive arts (visual art, music, or movement) activity that are bottom-up approaches to help integrate your brain.
