Compassion Fatigue for Social Workers

Please join ASU School of Social Work for Compassion Fatigue for Social Workers webinar course. Compassion Fatigue is a state characterized by a gradual lessening of compassion over time. It is common among individuals that work directly with trauma victims such as social workers. However, sufferers can exhibit several symptoms including hopelessness, a decrease in experiences of pleasure, depression, constant stress and anxiety, sleeplessness or nightmares, and a pervasive negative attitude. We find in the behavioral health arena it has a significant presence and can lead to negative outcomes for these helpers and can have an impact on patient care, relationships, and can lead to health issues. Mindful Self-Care is all about learning how to take care of yourself and identify those issues that trigger you to act in a negative manner. This is where the real work begins.
