This highly interactive training is designed to address the self care needs of your staff. Participants are encouraged to verbalize their understanding and connectedness to the multiple aspects of this syndrome. We take a self inventory to see first-hand the levels of stress experienced by each participant. We then review several tools and techniques to circumvent the most challenging aspects of their compassion fatigue and to be able to predominantly stay in a state of neuro-physiological (mind-body) regulation. We assess unique work settings to uncover appropriate opportunities to incorporate self care concurrent with work performance.
