Compassion Fatigue and Massage Therapists: A Practical Workbook (3 CE’s)

Click + to see class description
The expectation that we can be immersed in suffering and loss daily and not be touched by it is as unrealistic as expecting to be able to walk through water without getting wet.” Rachel Remen, Kitchen Table Wisdom 1996

Ideally, as caring therapists, we should feel satisfied with our work and derive satisfaction from providing excellent care. But even the most caring and compassionate therapist can find themselves losing satisfaction in a job done well. Those working in oncology, who may see more patient deaths than others, are often at a greater risk. We often form close, caring relationships over time with our patients and this can put us at risk for compassion fatigue. This workbook will provide an understanding of compassion fatigue and give the therapist the tools to identify their own symptoms of compassion fatigue as well as tools to prevent and reverse compassion fatigue in the therapist.
