Peer Support Series: #4 Compassion Fatigue (Illinois Only)
TIME: 1:00pm – 4:30pm CST
Faces & Voices of Recovery invites Illinois residents to a FREE virtual training sponsored by the State of Illinois. Compassion Fatigue is real and prevalent for those working in the human services field or any other role that is focused on caring for others. It is now considered an organizational contagion. Its insidious quality can corrode the individual’s emotional, mental, and physical health. It also can destroy relationships, family, and career. If compassion fatigue is not recognized and addressed, it can lead to complete burnout. This training is essential for anyone working with vulnerable populations. Many people who have chosen to work in this field have experiential expertise in trauma. This elevates the probability of developing compassion fatigue. Compassion Fatigue can be detrimental to their emotional, physical, and mental health. Learn about the risks, symptoms, and solutions to keep you healthy and balanced while you help others. Don’t let the “cost of caring” take away the very reason you came into this field.
