Film Screening of “Portraits of Professional CAREgivers: Their Passion. Their Pain.”
May 25, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
We ask the question: How is the professional care provider affected emotionally and physically, and who helps him or her?! The audience will discover that engaged empathic caregiving can sometimes be an occupational hazard; we explore the painful and human sides of these professions and the professionals’ response to trauma known as Compassion Fatigue or Secondary Traumatic Stress. We also recognize the profound meaning caregivers may experience, sometimes referred to as compassion satisfaction, and ways of coping and recovering from toxic stress in the workplace.
