A fundamental connection between personal and communal well-being exists, yet too often attention is not given to the caregiver. In this class, we will explore physiological, pastoral, and behavioral facets of compassion fatigue. For caregivers to be effective, they must be able to listen carefully what they are experiencing in their own bodies. This kind of self-awareness makes it possible for caregivers to notice when they are feeling stress, fatigue, or burnout and to take practical steps to address these challenges. This event is geared toward clergy, ministry leaders, and mental health professionals. CEs will be available for licensed social workers, professional counselors, and marriage/family therapists. CEUs will be available for clergy and laity.
