When Professional Caregiving Enhances vs Undermines Self-Care [External Event]
Thanks to COEAPA Member Dr. Jay Martin for sharing information about this workshop, which will be held on April 20th in Colorado Springs.
“This workshop is designed to support professional caregivers in maximizing their well- being, both personally and prfessionally. Participants will be able to recall the cycle of caring with implications for professional practice and specify ways that professional caregiving is a form of self-care. You will also be able to identify the hazards of professional caregiving and distinguish between compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatization, burnout and ambiguous endings. By utilizing self-assessment instruments and developing a personalized self-care plan, you can develop individualized strategies for the prevention of burnout and compassion fatigue as a means to sustaining professional and personal resilience. This interactive workshop provides opportunities for networking and affirming interactions with other professionals committed to growth and self- care.”
