Happy Staff: Effective Solutions to Improve Wellbeing & Manage Stress (Werribee,October 2017, VIC)

 “The expectation that we can be immersed in suffering & loss daily and not be touched by it is as unrealistic as expecting to be able to walk through water without getting wet.” - Remen 1996

Would you like to learn interactive ways to manage and avoid the occupational hazards of burnout, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue? Gain knowledge and understanding to optimise your health and wellbeing, and support the wellness of your peers and/or team?

Workshop Overview:

In this interactive workshop you will learn new self-care strategies, while engaging in self-nurturing activities that are educative, refreshing and strengthening. The expressive activities can easily be adapted to use with peers and client groups.

  • Recognise the symptoms and causes of burnout, as well as strategies to manage and avoid them.
  • Learn about the two components of compassion fatigue and experience engaging activities and discussion.
  • Discover how empathic engagement can lead to vicarious trauma and how to address this.
