Extinguishing Burnout

Alumni Professional Development

Caring for others can drain our own physical and emotional strength. We feel spent and cynical. We have a hard time empathizing or caring about our clients/patients, co-workers, and even our loved ones. Compassion fatigue affects healthcare workers, counselors and therapists, teachers and educators, correctional officers, ministers and clergy, and many others.

In the second session of the new Alumni Professional Development series, Extinguishing Burnoutparticipants will get an overview of the symptoms of compassion fatigue, how to recognize it in workers and how to measure its severity, and research-based techniques to address it.  


Upcoming Events
