Recharging! Combating Compassion Fatigue
Wed November 18, 2015: 11:00 am-12:30 pm EST
Centered around a theme of reenergizing and rejuvenating the work environment, this FREE web-based learning opportunity is open to the public and will be similar to a professional conference – no travel involved! Part 3 of the Virtual Learning Event Session will focus on professional development in the area of ‘Compassion Fatigue.’
Military caregivers are at high risk for the negative impact of compassion fatigue. The experience of trauma can extend beyond those who are directly impacted to those who provide care to traumatized individuals, including military service professionals. This phenomenon is referred to as compassion fatigue or secondary traumatic stress.
In this Virtual Learning Event session, attendees will gain an understanding of the concept of compassion fatigue, describe the symptoms of compassion fatigue, and discuss strategies to minimize the negative impact of compassion fatigue.
For more information about this three-part online learning event, see the MFLNMC Virtual Learning Event.
