Join this session as we equip you with skills to combat compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue can occur when we do not feel like what we are doing is making a positive impact on those we seek to serve. For many of us, our career selection was based on our core values and we find meaning when our values are evident in the outcomes of our work. It often serves our missions, values, and purpose to see evidence that we are making a difference in the lives of those we serve and to understand that they have a reservoir of resilience that, when combined with effective supports, can lead to successful and satisfying lives. We will share strategies for how to re-connect to this sense of purpose and will practice how we might intentionally seek out more positive stories about the impact of our work within our organizations.
- Explore leadership and staff strategies that may contribute to a compassionate culture through the Compassion Resilience Toolkit
- Learn the value of connecting to our professional purpose and mission through strategic storytelling
- Through use of a circle-based format, practice strategies for integrating stories of mission, purpose, and resilience among our co-workers, colleagues, and teams
