Webinar: Compassion Fatigue and Caregiver Satisfaction

Webinar: Compassion Fatigue and Caregiver Satisfaction 

Self-care should be a top priority in all trauma-informed care initiatives. Working in behavioral health and human services can cause a significant amount of mental and physical stress, lead to burnout and compassion fatigue, and expose individuals to vicarious trauma. Consequently, working in a trauma-informed way requires constant focus, self-awareness, and positive energy. Accomplishing this requires that a trauma-informed approach prioritizes an organization taking care of employees, coworkers taking care of each other, and finally caring for yourself.
