Agenda

Rebecca Brown, MSW, RSW, CHWC

Compassion Fatigue & Resilience

This keynote address will provide you valuable information about the impact of trauma work on professional helpers who work in the most challenging jobs. Vicarious Trauma and Compassion Fatigue are now seen as “the Cost of Caring” for these dedicated people in direct care. It has become the personal price we pay as professional helpers in sectors such as medical, health care, police, law, child welfare, shelters, trauma work, emergency and crisis responders, addictions, domestic violence, poverty, with the elderly and ill.

Goals:

  • Understand the terms: PTSD, Vicarious Trauma, Secondary Stress, Compassion Fatigue, Moral Distress/Conflict and Burnout
  • Recognize signs and symptoms in ourselves personally and professionally, how they happen, how they are similar and what to do when we are impacted by the work
  • Develop an Individual Resilience Tool Kit of strategies to stay healthy and incorporate these into an organizational culture of care for a Truly Trauma-Informed Workplace
