What Will You Learn?

Known as the ‘cost of caring’, compassion fatigue is defined as a form of stress that arises as a result of helping or wanting to help those who are traumatised or under significant emotional duress. The Compassion Fatigue Awareness Diploma Course explores this topic - explaining what it is, who it affects, how it comes about, and how to prevent and treat it.

The Compassion Fatigue Awareness Diploma Course begins with an explanation of compassion fatigue and an outline of the difference between compassion fatigue and burnout. We’ll look at studies on the topic of compassion fatigue and discover its symptoms.
 
Next, we’ll walk through three case studies that outline and explore the condition. The course also uncovers the risk factors of compassion fatigue, which include personal attributes, personal situations and organisational situations.
 
Those working in the healthcare sector are some of those most at risk of suffering with compassion fatigue. We’ll look at how nurses, doctors, mental health professionals and other caregivers can become affected. We will also discuss moral injury and critical care, and look at how compassion fatigue affects lawyers, police officers and other therapists.
 
The course looks into the factors and specific situations that can lead to compassion fatigue, how some of these factors are interrelated, and how they can amalgamate to form a larger challenge.
 
You’ll learn how to prevent and effectively treat compassion fatigue. We’ll look into the ABCs of prevention in both the reduction and elimination of compassion fatigue, how to identify the signs and how to use daily self-care.
 
The course concludes with an explanation of the compassion fatigue process.
