Now that I have publicized my website and what my plans are to support our human service agencies and staff, I will give you a little more info about what a workshop might look like for you and your agency. Agencies have also asked me about attending a staff meeting in the fall to provide information and give them an overview of how I might be able to support their staff.
I can do either or both.
The workshop would be about 1 1/2 hours and will consist of some back ground info about the terms compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma and the research. I will give you some of own history and my goals. I want to spend time allowing people to tell me what they do and how this may have affected them in the past or present and I would spend some time talking about self care and ongoing resources. It will depend on the group and the resources, but I would also attempt to spend some time at each agency in advance of the workshop to get to know the daily activities.
If you have any questions about how this might be used at your agency or how it might be developed to meet your needs, please contact me.
