Presenter: Dr Jacqui von Cziffra-Bergs
Interview with: Professor Adam Froerer (USA) on vicarious resilience
Covid-19 has forced therapists to listen to stories of loss, trauma, pain, hurt and struggle as life has changed dramatically in 2020. Being able to contain the emotions of other’s, as you too struggle with your own emotions of adapting to a new normal is not only a skill but a passion. Compassion fatigue is not a term coined by magazines it is a REAL exhaustion and an emptiness or irritability felt for good reason. Continuously being at the receiving end of emotional turmoil is draining and leads to burnout. We all know that self-care is necessity however, we never seem to get the time to do it. This short webinar offers you the opportunity to take care of yourself and debrief from the secondary trauma you might be carrying.
