Compassion Fatigue: Moving Beyond the Problem Toward Professional Resilience
Join Emily Hedrick, Forward-FacingⓇ Professional Resilience Consultant, in this workshop as she draws from the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue and the Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist training to provide an intensive one-day experiential training for helping professionals to prevent compassion fatigue and other work-related stress disorders. This course is an inoculation or vaccination against the potentially painful effects to caregivers working with troubled and traumatized populations. This training is also intended to produce an ameliorative effect upon the current compassion fatigue symptoms that participants may be experiencing. This training-as-treatment effect for this training has been published in several journals and is recognized as an effective treatment for the symptoms of compassion fatigue. The day is a potent alchemy of didactic information, experiential processing, and transformative techniques that assists the professional and/or volunteer care provider in resolving symptoms of compassion fatigue while, at once, developing resiliency skills and practices that prevent compassion fatigue symptoms in the future. Learners will engage in small group discussion, journaling, and real-time development of skills to use while on the job and create a Professional Resiliency Plan.

Exhaustion. Digestive issues. Anxiety. Isolation.
Many clinicians today are experiencing stress-related symptoms from working within a chronically overburdened healthcare system. Not only does that system offer little in the way of support; it stigmatizes clinicians who seek help for their mental health and well-being.
As a result, many clinicians hide their vulnerability and practice self-sacrifice. It is as if we are gazing at our reflections in a fog-covered mirror. We need better tools to clearly see and effectively care for the unique individuals that we are – in both our professional and personal lives.
It’s time to replace self-sacrifice with self-compassion.

Emily Hedrick M.Div, is a certified Forward-Facing® Professional Resilience consultant who offers training-as-treatment workshops for compassion fatigue. Like many, Emily acquired resilience skills the hard way: she began her career as a pastor and quickly developed compassion fatigue to the point of crisis. As she sought both information and resources for recovery, Emily encountered the work of traumatologist Dr. Eric Gentry and sought certification through his training organization Forward-Facing® Institute. She loved his approach so much that she joined the staff at Forward-Facing® Institute and is currently overseeing operations and training of future Forward-Facing® coaches in health and wellness and professional resilience.
Raised by a chaplain and a registered nurse, Emily’s personal encounter with compassion fatigue was not her only exposure to how toxic work environments and anxious systems can rob people of their ability to thrive in their work. Coming from a long line of compassionate pastors, nurses, teachers, and other helping professionals, Emily is passionate about equipping helpers with professional resilience skills so that they can not only survive their jobs, but feel fulfilled in their work no matter what kind of crisis they step into.
