Course Overview: Practicing Resilience: Essential Self-Care Strategies for Helping Professionals is a journey of awareness, care, and compassion. Too frequently in a helping profession burnout are vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue written-off as the cost of caring. We know that this does not have to be true. Professionals need to find ways to live and flourish in their work. How do we do it? This training gives participants space to answer that question. Practicing Resilience will instill the absolute necessity of one’s commitment to intentionally care for themselves. One must know that self-care is not separate from their work; it is non-negotiable for their work. In this training/course, we will dig into what affects us as trauma practitioners, the psychophysiology of joy and stress, and the paradox as a spiritual possession. We will learn about the natural negativity bias and daily positive practices to counter it. In addition, we will inquire of our own universal needs and harness the power of neuroplasticity and awareness. Participants will be guided through an array of experiences designed to help attune themselves to their true nature, connect them to their strengths, create resilient habits, and create a self-defined plan for how to care for themselves.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Define the experience of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burnout.
