Transforming compassion fatigue Feeling “crispy?” This workshop explores the experience of compassion fatigue in veterinary practice, with particular attention to methods of prevention and intervention. “Compassion fatigue” will be defined and differentiated from the other conditions frequently experienced by professional caregivers, and the neurobiology of compassion fatigue will be described. Drawing from both research and case examples, the personal and professional manifestations of compassion fatigue (“how do we know it when we see it?”) will also be reviewed in detail. Finally, attendees will walk away with practical, real-time strategies for restoring personal well-being, renewing vocational commitment, and reviving the relationships – personal and professional -- so often damaged by chronic stress.


Attendees will be able to:
• Understand the etiology of compassion fatigue and burnout in veterinary practice.
• Identify the most common manifestations of compassion fatigue on both an individual and organizational level.
• Implement evidence-based practices to transform compassion fatigue and heal the cognitive, physical, and emotional effects of chronic stress.
