A presentation by Allyson Petry, Executive Director of Nazareth Farm. Working in a caring profession isn't easy work, and many of us are not equipped to take in all the stories, trauma, pressures, and needs of our clients and staff. Learning signs of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma in oneself can allow individuals to keep working and caring in healthy ways. Without this knowledge and self-insight, many individuals experience burnout, anger, or unhealthy relationships. This session will introduce these topics and allow for space to discuss ways to handle them. Let other people's stories give you life, not stress. Learn how to combat compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.
