Secondary Traumatic Stress/ Compassion Fatigue:
This Is Hard, This Work That We Do,
AND We Are Making A Difference
on Wednesday, January 15, 2020
from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PT
Secondary Traumatic Stress/Compassion Fatigue [STS/CF] is the emotional, physical, and personal response to frequent exposure to and empathic engagement with individuals and families struggling with significant challenges in their lives. It is often referred to as the "emotional cost of caring." This webinar will explore STS/CF and other human services workplace stressors and how we can ultimately experience "compassion satisfaction," which is the key to thriving in the midst of this difficult work that we do. Real-time, on-the-job strategies will be examined, including self-awareness, self-regulation, emotional reflection, and the elicitation and amplification of good work. Participants will also be given references to an array of supervisory and organizational strategies that are foundational to mediating STS/CF.
This webinar is presented by Alan O'Malley-Laursen, MSW, LICSW.
