Service professions do not have to lead to burn out, compassion fatigue or secondary stress, but often do, especially with the added challenges of a pandemic. Although our work is very rewarding, it’s a field that can lead to burnout, secondary stress and compassion fatigue. This workshop is designed to give you the tools needed to enhance your resiliency, and to embrace self- care as an ethical issue.
The benefits of healthy stress, indicators of burnout and secondary stress are explored as well as understanding and practicing regulation of the autonomic nervous system. Other foundational practices that both prevent and promote healing of secondary stress will be explored, with engagement from the participants. Come ready to engage and re-invigorate!
