Free webinar: Professional Wellness Seminar by Julie Steward
Date:1:30pm to 2:30pm on 25 September 20
Compassion fatigue and burnout can be serious occupational hazards for those working in the helping profession. Whilst there is gradual recognition within the profession that workers are impacted by the work they do, it is important we increase awareness, understanding and dialogue about the issues facing our very valuable caring professionals.
This seminar will provide information that will help you to identify the signs/symptoms of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and burnout. There will be an opportunity to reflect on the impact of the work you engage in and help identify ways to retain/reclaim your wellness as a helping professional.
