Compassion Fatigue Awareness (0.2 CEUs)

Healthcare providers by nature are service-driven by a desire to care for their community. This high level of compassion and empathy shown by healthcare, emergency and community service professionals can prove physically, psychically and mentally harmful. Learn the difference between burnout and compassion fatigue. Recognize the signs of compassion fatigue within yourself and your coworkers.
Presenter: Robert Brinker, Westmoreland Social Work adjunct instructor
