Caregiver fatigue is a general term that describes the chronic and cumulative effect of different stresses at work and how it negatively impacts one’s ability to be effective. This is especially important in the context of working in helping professions because the erosion of compassion and empathy affects a worker’s effectiveness in healing. This class explores this field, the nature of compassion satisfaction, and offers strategies for cultivating resilience and compassion satisfaction that are both self-care and team-care oriented.
This class has much of the same content as our previous Compassion Fatigue class.
