Recognising and Responding to Compassion Fatigue - from Stress to Strength
We are the only UK based training company to deliver bespoke courses designed to enable attendees to explore the impact of Compassion Fatigue on their mental health and wellbeing. Our courses are accredited by the IATP (International Association of Trauma Professionals) and the full course holds 6 CPD accreditation points.
Content and Delivery
The full course is 6 hours long with a maximum of 20 participants and is delivered either at your premises, if a suitable room is available, or at a local venue.
We encourage the organisation to provide a venue suited to the theme of self care, and to provide refreshments and lunch as this adds to the value of the training.
All courses are bespoke and have different content for managers to enable them to support their staff.
The content includes:
What is Compassion Fatigue and its effects
How to recognise the signs and symptoms
A toolkit of strategies to strengthen resilience
We strongly believe that there is little point in delivering training that is not both effective and delivers sustainable results. All participants fill out a pre-course questionnaire and are then re-assessed at intervals to monitor the ongoing impact and effectiveness of the training.
The anonymised results of all monitoring and feedback are shared with the organisations who book our training.
We are incredibly proud of our results. Previous attendees of our course have seen dramatic improvements in the morale and resilience of their teams. We have reduced staff turnover and absenteeism, and helped Managers implement changes to create a more supportive and compassionate work environment.
