Self-Care in the Face of Adversity
School counselors are called upon to be leaders in the face of tragedies such as the loss of a student or staff member, schoolwide threats and crisis. We provide psychological first aid and emotional care, but often we don’t apply those skills to our own lives. School counselors need the knowledge, attitude and skills to recognize and prevent professional burnout and compassion fatigue. Learn about the physical, emotional, behavioral and spiritual signs of compassion fatigue, and leave empowered to use the three R’s as a strategy for self-care.
