Description

Have you ever felt angry, irritable or sad because of the work that you do? Have you ever questioned whether it’s all worthwhile? Or do you feel completely satisfied by your work yet emotionally and physically exhausted by it at the same time? You might be experiencing the signs of compassion fatigue. (secondary trauma and burnout). Animal care professionals may be particularly at risk because of their dual role of caring for both animals and their owners. Stressful interactions with the public, exposure to trauma and coping with the loss of animals through accidents, illness or euthanasia all contribute to compassion fatigue. This seminar is intended to help individuals recognize the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and identify evidence based strategies to prevent and manage the condition. Objectives Recognize the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue Learn evidence based tools to manage and prevent compassion fatigue
