Burning up while burning out: compassion fatigue awareness and burnout prevention for practitioners
Aims : This seminar focuses on understanding compassion fatigue & burnout, including their similarities and differences. In addition to defining and comparing these conditions, specific triggers will be explored.
Participants will gain awareness of key signs and symptoms, while learning how to manage stressors and their consequences. Specific attention will be given to physical, emotional/mental and behavioural symptoms. Strategies for management and prevention are shared, including mindfulness training and behaviours that can help reduce the frequency of fatigue and prevent burnout.
Additionally, theories will be introduced that will help translate conceptual understanding to actual workplace and personal change. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to create their own individualized management and prevention plan
