Self Care

About the course

People who care for others in different capacities are generally passionate about what they do, but doing what we can to help can come at a cost and cause us problems. In the past we would have talked about burnout – a sense of not being able to cope with the job – Now we look to the stage before burnout and call it Compassion Fatigue or Vicarious Trauma. We now know how important it is to look after ourselves. This program focuses on the impact of compassion fatigue and strategies for looking after yourself
