About The Event
Working on the front lines of heath care and behavioral health is exciting, fulfilling and gratifying. It can also be stressful and overwhelming. Long hours working with people who are struggling to stay healthy while dealing with lots of personal, economic, and social challenges can really take its toll.
This 4-hour training outlines what compassion fatigue is, how it differs from burnout, and the role of both the workplace and the worker in addressing it. Participants will come out of this session with a personal plan to prevent or reduce compassion fatigue and burnout.
Target audience: Community Health Workers and other Traditional Health Workers, eligibility specialists, patient navigators, CADCs, case managers and those who supervise front line health and behavioral health staff.
This training offers 4 THW and MHACBO CEU contact hours.
Facilitators: Lisa Ladendorff, LCSW and Connie Sherrard, MSW
