The Wounded Healer: Helping the Helper
Burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma are landmines in the field of addiction. Many of us struggle with work demands, familial expectations, not to mention the desire for a fulfilling personal life. Our supervisors repeat the mantra, "don't forget your self care!" But who has the energy to schedule a massage or even run a bubble bath after a stressful day? In order to thrive in this field, it's crucial we shine a light on what really matters when it comes to caring for ourselves and the barriers that get in the way of being our best selves. This experiential workshop will differentially define burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma; provide a deep understanding of self-compassion (and what gets in the way); and support participants in evaluating crucial components of their individual self-care plan to support the healthiest version of themselves.
