Description

In traditional Native American teaching, each time a medicine man/woman heals someone, you give away a piece of yourself until at some point you require healing. The journey to become a modern-day healer involves an understanding that the professional helper at some point in time may also become wounded and require healing. Dr. Stebnicki coined the term “empathy fatigue” in 1998 and has been conceptually describing, evaluating, and treating the experience of this phenomenon ever since. Empathy fatigue results from a state of psychological, emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, and occupational exhaustion that occurs as the counselors’ wounds are continually revisited by their clients’ life stories of stress, traumatic stress, grief, loss, chronic illness, and disability. There appears to be a “shadow side” of empathy during the therapeutic relationship as professional helpers enter the deeply emotional experience of their client’s world of extraordinary stressful and traumatic events. Thus, professional helpers are at risk for the experience of empathy fatigue. This course challenges participants to: (a) engage in self-exploration of your personal and professional growth potential, (b) develop self-care practices that are both practical for your life, yet create deeper meaning for personal integration and insight, (c) model self-care practices for your clients that form the foundation of the therapeutic relationship and earning the circle of trust, and (d) explore multiple therapeutic resources that empower both you and your clients for living life in optimal wellness. Overall, Transcending Empathy Fatigue utilizes guided self-exploration, self-assessment, and development of your intuitive capabilities to empower your mind, body, and spirit for personal and professional growth. An extensive workbook with over 50 pages of material is included in this course.

This is a non-interactive, self-study course.

Instruction consists of 3 hours of video instruction and a post-test.

Course Availability

From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this training, professionals will be able to do the following:

  • Identify and evaluate the cognitive, behavioral, spiritual, process skills, emotional, physical, and occupational characteristics of the empathy fatigue experience using the Global Assessment of Empathy Functioning (GAEF-II) model.
  • Explore the experience and impact of empathy fatigue as it relates to the professional’s ethical responsibility of maintaining optimal self-care while providing competent services during intense therapeutic interactions with clients’ experience of extraordinary stressful and traumatic events.
  • Illustrate self-care strategies for the prevention, preparation, and reduction of the empathy fatigue experience cultivating wellness, behavioral health, mindfulness stress reduction, and other self-care approaches to increase empathy resiliency for optimal wellness.
