Dec 8 Compassion Fatigue: Transforming Burnout into Balance Friday, December 8, 2017, 8:30 am – 11:45 am (8:00 – 8:30 am: Check-in & Continental Breakfast) Beaver Creek Country Club, 9535 Mapleville Rd, Hagerstown, MD 21740. The manifestation of compassion fatigue, emotional exhaustion, work-related stress and burnout are an unfortunate consequence for many who work with individuals who suffer from trauma, depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders. The cumulative  negative effects can be profound and in some cases devastating if interventions are not employed to manage the stress of this type of work.  This workshop will help clinicians understand, recognize and evaluate compassion fatigue both in themselves and their clients. Specific intervention strategies and activities will be included in order to help practice self-regulation, intentionality, connection, and self-care.

Social media, in all of its various forms, has become an integral part of the teenage experience.
