Put Your Oxygen Mask on First: Practicing Self-Care when Faced with Compassion Fatigue

Tanisha L. Knighton | September 22 | 1:30 - 2:30 PM | Room 2582

For those working in the helping professions, compassion fatigue is as common as “turbulence” during a windy flight. In order to address this turbulence, one must develop self-care strategies and warning systems to let them know they are moving into the caution zone and the oxygen masks will soon deploy. Prevention and self-care can best happen when professionals are able to distinguish between and identify personal and professional vulnerability. This interactive workshop will help professionals renew their passion and commitment to the field and their work.
