Description de l'évenement

Are you, or someone you work with, experiencing any of the following: feeling disconnected from friends and family? increased illness or fatigue? feelings of apathy or cynicism about your work? loss of empathy for clients?

Working in the helping professions means that we are frequently secondary witnesses to the trauma and severe stress experienced by our clients. It is human and natural to be affected by others’ suffering. However, the potential risk of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and burnout is a major concern, taking its toll on many practitioners.

Identifying these experiences associated with our work, and addressing our safety and self-care individually and with our colleagues, are essential and often under-prioritized skills within our professions. In this practical and experiential workshop, underpinned by Adlerian principles and practice, Anthea Millar will address the following:
• Understanding Compassion Fatigue, Vicarious Trauma, and Secondary Traumatic Stress
• The Neuroscience of ‘Second-Hand Shock’
• The Challenge of Empathy
• Interventions Enabling Practitioner Safety and Self-Care
• Strengthening Networks of Support within our Workplaces
