Are you suffering, or know someone who is suffering, from compassion fatigue?
Do you listen to patients’ traumatic stories all day at work and become preoccupied with absorbing their trauma and emotional stresses? This can create a secondary traumatic stress in the listener which is called compassion fatigue.
Do you have any of the following signs or symptoms of compassion fatigue?
Sadness, grief, avoidance or dread of working with some patients, reduced ability to feel empathy towards patients or families or frequent sick days?
What about headaches, digestive problems, fatigue or poor concentration?
We are excited to have Assoc Prof Teresa Mitchell- Paterson, a nutritionist and naturopath for over 25 years, an innovative national public speaker and winner of the Bioceutical’s Integrative Medicine Award in 2016, discuss the following:
- An overview of compassion fatigue and its impact on health
- How to make a clinical assessment of compassion fatigue
- What the predictive markers are
- And how nutrition, physical activity, sleep and environmental factors play a role in the recovery.
