The Impact of Compassion Fatigue in Peer Support Work

2/18/2021

The Impact of Compassion Fatigue in Peer Support Work

Please Note: This full-day training was not recorded due to the sensitive nature of the discussion

This one-day training is essential for the peer workforce. Compassion Fatigue is real and prevalent for those working in the human services field or any other role that is focused on caring for others. It is now considered an organizational contagion. Its insidious quality can corrode the individual’s emotional, mental, and physical health. It also can destroy relationships, family and career. If compassion fatigue is not recognized and addressed, it can lead to complete burnout. This training is essential for anyone working with vulnerable populations. Many people who have chosen to work in this field have experiential expertise in trauma. This elevates the risk for developing compassion fatigue. Compassion Fatigue can be detrimental to their emotional, physical, and mental health. Learn about the risks, symptoms, and solutions to keep you healthy and balanced while you help others. Don’t let the “cost of caring” take away the very reason you came into this field.

Ethics, Values and Boundaries in Peer Recovery Support Work

2/4/2021

This full-day training was not recorded due to the sensitive nature of the discussion.

This one-day interactive training provides a comprehensive look into ethical codes of conduct and their role in Peer Support Services. Often ethical codes are muddied when working with human beings struggling with obstacles such as substance use and mental health challenges. This may be particularly true in Peer Support Services. Participants will study the types of boundaries that exist in human behavior and what drives them. With a self-assessment process, participants will discover their own personal boundaries and how that may affect their work and their lives. Topics include morals, values, boundaries, and confidentiality laws; core competencies and practice guidelines; iatrogenic, fiduciary, multi-party vulnerability; ethical decision-making; national standards.
