This presentation draws from the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue and the Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist Training to provide an informative 30 minute presentation for professional helpers to prevent compassion fatigue and other work-related stress disorders. Created by Dr. Eric Gentry, the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue has been published in several journals and is recognized as an effective treatment for the symptoms of compassion fatigue. The presentation is a potent alchemy of didactic information, experiential processing, and transformative techniques that assist 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. The keynote will serve to dispel common myths about compassion fatigue and its prevention and treatment and encourage and empower professional caregivers to seek care and support each other.
