Event Description

2015 marked the 20th anniversary of the publication of Charles Figley's pioneering book "Compassion Fatigue", which explored the potentially negative impact of trauma exposure on helping professionals.
Since then, the field of Compassion Fatigue (CF) and Secondary Trauma (STS) has grown exponentially, and new research has emerged suggesting effective ways for therapists and other helping professionals to sustain and protect themselves. New findings suggest that in order to reduce compassion fatigue and secondary trauma, we need to adopt a multi-pronged approach - self care, hot baths and company picnics are simply not enough.
Although helping professionals cannot be expected to fix an entire system, they do however remain responsible for their own well-being - it is an ethical responsibility, for themselves, their clients and the community in which they live.
This presentation will review what's new and what works to reduce the cost of caring and offer three key tools for best practice.
