Professional Resilience and Compassion Fatigue Prevention

Friday, Dec 1, 2017

8:30am – 4:00pm

Join Dr. Eric Gentry, LMHC in this workshop as he draws from the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue and the Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist Training to provide an intensive one-day experiential training for professional helpers to prevent compassion fatigue and other work-related stress disorders. This course is an inoculation or vaccination against the potentially painful effects to caregivers working with troubled and traumatized populations. This training is also intended to produce an ameliorative effect upon the current compassion fatigue symptoms that participants may be experiencing. This training-as-treatment effect for this training has been published in several journals and is recognized as an effective treatment for the symptoms of compassion fatigue. The day is a potent alchemy of didactic information, experiential processing, and transformative techniques that assists the professional and/or volunteer care provider in resolving symptoms of compassion fatigue while, at once, developing resiliency skills and practices that prevent compassion fatigue symptoms in the future. Dr. Gentry has offered this training to over 100,000 satisfied professional and volunteer care providers in the U.S. and abroad.
