Compassion Fatigue Podcast

leave a comment »

One of the most commonly searched terms on this site is “compassion fatigue” (or alternately  “secondary trauma” or “burnout”). Enough of you have been searching the term lately that I’m compelled to give you a new offering on the subject. This one‘s from PESI, and while it’s not free (cost is $29), it nets nurses 1.5 CEUs in a convenient audio package.

According to the website, highlights of the program includes:

  • Evidence-based resiliency training for caregiving professionals
  • Compassion fatigue, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious traumatization, countertransference, burnout, caregiver stress … What you need to know
  • Why self-care isn’t enough – the secrets of compassion resiliency
  • Become significantly more effective in your work by integrating the simple components of this training
  • Learn the 5 critical elements of professional resiliency
  • Learn compassion resiliency skills drawn from the Accelerated Recovery Program (ARP) for Compassion Fatigue – the only empirically-validated treatment for symptoms of compassion fatigue
  • Learn the skills to sustain your longevity as a professional caregiver
  • Powerful tools to immediately integrate into your practice

Download “Compassion Fatigue Prevention & Resiliency: Fitness for the Frontline” here (and yes, I did fix their typo. You’re welcome, PESI.)
