"Compassion Fatigue is the emotional residue or strain of exposure to working with those suffering from the consequences of traumatic events. It differs from burn-out, but can co-exist."
89.7% of the U.S. population has lived through a traumatic event.
The Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN) and The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Department of Psychiatry will host Heal the Healer at the Carol Joy Holling Conference and Retreat Center on Friday, March 13, 2020.
Heal the Healer is an all-day conference (9 a.m.-3 p.m.) focused on providing education and support to professionals in mental health, psychiatric nursing, and social work around the topics of compassion fatigue, self-care, and community care for resilience. Professionals will learn about compassion fatigue, work-related secondary trauma exposure, and resilience strategies.
Discuss the risks and prevention strategies related to compassion fatigue and secondary traumatic stress as it pertains to the professional role and personal health and well-being
Apply different tools and intervention practices for maintaining career sustainability and alleviating the impact after a critical incident
Describe an individualized plan of care including implementation plans for the community and work-life balance as derived from recovery practices and the restorative circle process
