Ask the Expert: Q&A Webinar with Françoise Mathieu

blog-webinar-ask-the-expert-francoise-mathieu-compassion-fatigue


Last week, Françoise had the honour of being invited to participate in an “Ask the Expert” webinar by CIR – the Centre for Innovation and Resources Inc. The CIR serves those who are working to protect and heal children and families. They work to optimize established services so that children, families, and communities are served in a holistic way based on best practices and current research.

During this webinar, Françoise answers questions from healthcare professionals surrounding the issues of vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue, as well as offers suggestions on how to combat its effects in our work and personal life.

Some of the questions include:

“I like to watch the news to keep informed, however I’m aware it affects me due to vicarious trauma. I’ve tried not watching or reading any news at all, but that doesn’t work. What do you suggest?”

“What are some tools that I can use to help me with the stories that haunt me?”

“What are some strategies for recharging when we realize that compassion fatigue or vicarious trauma is affecting our ability to connect with the work we do, and our personal lives?”

Find the answers to these questions and many more in the full “Ask the Expert” webinar:

Found online: Free Webinar on Compassion Fatigue

This free webinar came across my google alerts this morning:

March 3, 2010 – Compassion Fatigue
LCDR Pamela Herbig – Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Nurse Specialist and Director, Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences as Director of the PMH-NP program.

I don’t know the organisers or the presenter, but Rocky Mountain Learning seems to be a really interesting agency who specialises in bringing training to folks through webinars and other distance learning modules.

As I gear up to leave my young kids for five days (nearly the longest ever), the idea of doing more and more web-based training is highly appealling to me, let alone the significant cost savings for all involved (no travel, no hotels, etc.)

So, if you’re free on March 3, consider signing up for this training and let me know what you think, both of the content and the learning medium.
