Compassion Fatigue Workshop

Wednesday, April 8, 2020
9:00am – 11:00am

UConn Health
Munson Road Training Room, 4th Floor

This new workshop is designed to educate individuals on compassion fatigue as a result of the ongoing impact of being involved in others’ lives in a helping capacity. The goal of the course is to facilitate an exploration of common symptoms of compassion fatigue in order to increase personal awareness. Through informal activities, participants will begin to develop a personal action plan to increase self-care.

“Symptoms of compassion fatigue affect both individuals and the organizations in which they work. Despite the type of work involved, the personal and professional symptoms we are vulnerable to often sneak up on us. We are busy helping others and too often neglect our own needs. Healing and increasing resilience for ongoing work with others require both ongoing awareness and purposeful action on our own behalf.” - Marya M. Barey, Ph.D.
