Caregivers are scrambling to meet the needs of a constantly changing and invisible threat. Although we’re trained to manage the unmanageable, the Coronavirus Crisis presents unique challenges and compassion fatigue is becoming more real by the day. For starters we’re all in this together, therapists as well as clients alike, are scared and disoriented. Comments from therapists like “One-to-one” is going fine… but group, I have zoom fatigue”, or “I like working at home but I miss my life” and “I’m just not getting the human energy back that I’m used to in sessions, at least not in group.” And “the kinds of disenfranchised grief issues that are getting triggered in my clients, are getting triggered in me, too,” are common. Not only are we learning to refine our techniques on a day-to-day basis to meet the needs of our clients, we’re feeling pressure to stave off what could or is becoming a mental health crisis. It’s tiring!
So in this workshop we’ll combine a little reflection on where we are now, we’ll learn several experiential exercises that can be used in both one to one and in group that help to focus in on the specific issues that are getting triggered by COVID-19. And we’ll use them to do a little self-care, as well. Join Tian Dayton, Senior Fellow at Meadows Behavioral Healthcare, in an experience that will be both personally refreshing and professionally informative.
