Part one of this presentation series looked at how to identify early warning signs of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. The discussion also focused on minimizing the impact, improve resilience, promote healthy coping, and prevent the negative effects of cumulative stress.
Part two will being going deeper into these topics to explore the neurology of stress and the beliefs behind stress. This presentation will answer many questions about “why” stress is so impactful in this career especially when working with difficult offenders. The presentation will incorporate various activities/discussions for each attendee to explore their own stresses from their careers. The end of the presentation always is related to self-care practices and wellness.
