Flipping the Switch: Compassion Fatigue to Compassion Satisfaction


Event Date/Time: August 29, 2024, 10:00–11:30 am

Instructor(s): Lindsay Dutton

Many of us go into the human services field because we have an immense passion for helping others and serving our communities. However, we aren’t always aware of how supporting others can take a toll on our own well-being. This training will introduce the concepts of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma, but most importantly we will discuss compassion satisfaction and resilience. Together we will gain an understanding of how to nurture our own well-being and protect ourselves, while also providing great support to those we serve.

Participants will leave with an understanding of:

  • What compassion fatigue is, the contributing factors, as well as the signs and symptoms.
  • The differences and similarities between compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, secondary traumatic stress, and burnout.
  • Compassion satisfaction, resilience, and the connection with our well-being.
  • How to create a simple support plan for themselves to use at work and/or home to help serve as a reminder to make space for their own well-being.
