Compassion Fatigue Training - Dublin, 5th October 2017

This training day takes place on the 5th October in the Ashling Hotel, Dublin and will consist of looking at those who, by 'giving too much' while working in in their profressional capacity in the caring sector, can suffer from Compassion Fatigue, which is a type of burnout, but one that mainly stems from becoming too emotionally attached to the people we work with. Professionals will reflect on their day-to-day working routine while working out what areas could be managed better in relation to self-care. 
Researcher, Social Care Practitioner & Fitness Instructor, Jennifer Reidy will provide professionals with tools to manage their self-care levels. How our bodies react to trauma will also be explored & how to deal with past traumatic experiences. Jennifer will bring awareness to what can trigger us to feel deflated during the working day & how to manage that. Speaking from her wide experience within the field, Jennifer will present on her experiences. There will be a focus on group interaction & also awareness that personal information will only be shared where people feel open to doing so. 
The training day will begin at 10am following sign-in & meet & greet. The day will consist of hands-on training, group interaction, reflection, tea breaks/lunch & will finish at 3:30pm. This training is now being widely delivered within the social care field as it is much needed in order to protect our professionals & keep them resilient, while working in high demanding environments. Professionals are guaranteed to leave this day equipped with new tools & resilience where needed. As this day is workshop-style, places are strictly limited.
Places on this course are strictly limited and cost of this training is €120 per delegate.To book, please contact Mairead Holohan in the ICSH on 01 661 8334 or
