Neglected:  Healing Burnout and Compassion Fatigue

Dr. John Dyben, DHSc, MCAP, CMHP

Extending ourselves each day in clinical environments, it’s easy to forget to take care of the caregiver. We often fail to remember the “heavy lifting” necessary to support others who are troubled, share optimism when we can and create enthusiasm for change among difficult populations….all while dealing with our own personal lives that may too, be troubled. Many of us won’t soon forget the engaging and down to earth event that Dr. Dyben brought us a few years ago on “The Happiness Trap.” One of our highest-rated presentations ever! This presentation will explore the dynamics of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma and how they manifest in the everyday life of mental health professionals.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define concepts of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma in the context of clinical counseling.
  2. Explain risk factors faced by those working in counseling professions
  3. identify early warning signs of burnout in self and others.
  4. Prevent burnout by learning to balance the immense demands of work with the ultimate reality of having human needs that cannot be ignored...for too long.
