301 – Working on Empty: What to do when Compassion Fatigue Replaces Compassion Satisfaction in Your Work

Sunday, June 11
9:00am – 12:00pm 

Fee:  $125

Compassion fatigue refers to the profound, gradual physical and emotional exhaustion that helping professionals, such as those caring for animals, may develop over the course of their working career. It has deep repercussions and has been associated with burnout, career changes, addiction, depression and suicide ideation in veterinarians, animal health technicians and others who work with animals. This workshop aims to help participants understand the contributing factors of compassion fatigue, learn a checklist of signs and symptoms to watch for, assess their own level of compassion fatigue, and discover and practice antidotes to compassion fatigue. Participants will design their own personal self-care plan and prevention toolkit that will reflect their own work environment, personal and life circumstances.
