Caring has its costs.
But helping others heal and regain productive lives is likely what led you to become a clinician in the first place.
So what happens when all the accumulated suffering and trauma that you have witnessed in session starts to cause problems in your own personal and professional life?
Working with patients who suffer from trauma, pain, abuse and depression can have negative effects on you, the caregiver—many of which are potentially debilitating. The pandemic and recent years have only heightened these visceral feelings and put more strain on clinicians.
It’s because of this that Dr. J. Eric Gentry, an internationally recognized leader in the area of compassion fatigue, created a framework and a self-directed plan for reversing the effects of compassion fatigue through professional resiliency.
After this training, you will take home evidence-based compassion resiliency and prevention skills drawn from the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue. Learn practical self-regulation skills that are critical to your being maximally effective with your patients and improving treatment outcomes.
Best of all, upon completion of this training, you’ll be eligible to become a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional (CCFP) through Evergreen Certifications. Certification lets colleagues, employers, and clients know that you’ve invested the extra time and effort necessary to understand the complexities of compassion fatigue.*
Let Dr. Gentry show you how to recapture your sense of mission, purpose, hope and joy in your career helping others.
