Compassion Fatigue: The Cost of Caring for Others

Thursday, May 30, 2024
1:00 pm2:00 pm

In our field of work, we often prioritize others’ needs at our own expense, forgetting that our needs are important too. Despite attempting to separate work from personal life, we often tie our identity to our profession. This session addresses compassion fatigue, burnout, and vicarious trauma, highlighting risk factors and symptoms. We’ll emphasize the significance of self-care, explore types, and discuss ways to prioritize it.
