Practical Strategies to Manage and Prevent Compassion Fatigue!

Trauma-Informed Compassion Fatigue Resiliency



 May 15, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST (New York/Toronto

Training is delivered in-real-time online and will be recorded for replay for those who are unable to attend live. 


 The reason we teach a trauma-informed approach to managing compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma is because often helping professionals have their own history of adverse childhood experiences, or trauma, that can be impacting their health in the present day, while working, without their awareness.

 This training goes way beyond focusing on “self-care” as a way to prevent and recovery from compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.  You will learn how to assess and monitor your own compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.  You will learn practical strategies to use while you are working with clients/patients/students, and while you are alone to reduce compassion fatigue.  You will learn a strategy to help reduce the chance of developing acute stress disorder when exposed to trauma.

 You will also learn how to differentiate between compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, acute stress disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety.  This way you will know if you should be using strategies for compassion fatigue or if you should be seeking more comprehensive support for mental health. 



  • The stages of compassion fatigue and how it differs from burnout
  • Why it’s so important to take a trauma-informed approach to compassion fatigue resiliency
  • How to protect yourself while you are helping people who are suffering
  • A vicarious trauma recovery process for Acute Stress and how to recognize Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Practical strategies to increase your compassion satisfaction and vicarious resilience 


A growing body of research provides the evidence that developing resilience can transform our lives as individuals, impacting us both personally and professionally.

The benefits of resilience can include:

  • Improved stress management skills

  • Improved focus and concentration

  • Increased capacity for compassion
  • Improved health, wellbeing and life satisfaction
  • Improved interpersonal skills
  • And more.


 While the primary audience for this workshop is helping professionals, including; social workers, teachers, nurses and health care providers, anyone who provides compassionate care to those who are suffering can also derive great benefit from the training. Join us to learn how to prevent and recover from compassion fatigue and improve your skills as a professional through the science, the practice and the integration of compassion fatigue resiliency into your work and life.
