Compassion Fatigue on Campus - Click for registration
Thursday, April 14, 2022 at 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Campus professionals working directly with students tend to be the first point of contact for students experiencing emotional, mental and physical difficulties. Providing this level of constant care is demanding and can encroach upon the personal well-being of staff if adequate support measures are not in place.
This workshop is a great learning opportunity for campus staff that provides tangible tools to support mental health and contribute to everyone’s well-being on campus. By attending this workshop, participants will:
Understand the difference between secondary traumatic stress, burnout and compassion fatigue/empathic strain.
Increase internal coping skills through various modalities.
Learn the 3-Rs: a framework for supporting co-workers.
The session will be facilitated by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health (CICMH).
