Short Course / CPD
half day workshop
School of Community Health and Midwifery
No Partner College
Friday 20 November 2015 (1pm – 4pm) Or Thursday 10 March 2016 (1pm – 4pm)
This workshop is aimed at practice nurses, health visitors, school nurses, midwives, youth workers, GPs, student support workers, occupational health therapists, general nurses, pharmacists, social workers, prison workers, pastoral care staff, hospice staff, counsellors, or any frontline provider.
Compassion fatigue is a relatively new concept in the UK and this course is based on the Canadian model.
This workshop is the first instalment of a two-part workshop aimed at any practitioners working in frontline services. The workshop will provide an overview of what compassion fatigue is, and how it may impact on us both personally and in the workplace. It will also begin to help you recognise and become familiar with the components of compassion fatigue. It allows an opportunity to step back and reflect upon both the theory and its relevance to us as helpers.
You can attend this workshop only as a ‘half day’ or as a ‘full day’ along with the Part 2 workshop ‘Developing Compassion Fatigue Resiliency’.
Who should attend?
Practice nurses, health visitors, school nurses, midwives, youth workers, GPs, student support workers, occupational health therapists, general nurses, pharmacists, social workers, prison workers, pastoral care staff, hospice staff, counsellors, or any frontline provider.
