Compassion Fatigue Workshop: Building Resilience Against Burnout and Compassion Fatigue: Strategies for Success
SUMMARY: An important training offered for human services professionals, especially those who care for children and other vulnerable people.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: child care providers, teachers, school staff, CASA volunteers, pediatric medical staff, social workers, DCFS staff, foster parents, adoptive parents, etc.
DESCRIPTION: Community concern for the burn-out early childhood professionals experience rises as local childcare options become less and less available. Prevention Works! brings a Saturday morning workshop on Compassion Fatigue to Clallam County on October 5 at Jamestown Campus Red Cedar Hall from 9 AM to noon.
Dr. Marya (Mary-ah) Barey, Seattle Psychologist, teacher, mental health supervisor and author, will define Compassion Fatigue, indicate prevention activities for caregivers and increase awareness of personal & professional consequences of Compassion Fatigue. Dr. Barey will offer effective strategies to prevent and counteract symptoms professional caregivers may experience over time.
Sustaining caregivers is an important focus in keeping our County healthy for children and others who are dependent on quality care. Prevention Works! offers this training particularly in support of the local crisis of extremely limited access to local quality childcare and to assist current caregivers in becoming less vulnerable.
$30 registration fee includes professional presentation with colleagues, healthy snacks and certificates. STARS credits, Continuing Education Units or Clock Hours available upon request.
