The Connecticut Women's Consortium strives to provide the best quality behavioral health education across all platforms. As with any online activity, the quality of our virtual trainings is heavily dependent on participants' individual internet connectivity; if available to you, we strongly suggest hard-wiring to your internet connection for the duration of the training. In addition, we urge you to access your virtual training utilizing a laptop or desktop computer, as mobile devices such as smart phones and iPads may lead to a diminished experience. All virtual courses count toward your in-person continuing education credit. The majority of virtual trainings are hosted through Zoom. The link to attend as well as any relevant handouts will be emailed to registered participants 2 business days ahead of the training. In purchasing a virtual training, you are acknowledging that you have read and understand the information above.

As practicing clinicians, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue are terms we hear often and may not fully understand. The American Psychological Association (APA) defines vicarious traumatization as “the impact on a therapist of repeated emotionally intimate contact with trauma survivors.” The APA goes on to define compassion fatigue as “the burnout and stress-related symptoms experienced by caregivers and other helping professionals in reaction to working with traumatized people over an extended period of time”. Vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue steal our motivation and create mental and physical exhaustion, and self-doubt. This is a very real issue in our industry and there are practical solutions to combat this invasive performance destroyer. As clinicians we sometimes live with these overwhelming feelings and stressors – isolating ourselves for fear that there is something wrong with us for feeling this way. This workshop was specifically created for any clinicians who wants to be in a space to learn the benefit and practice of self-care.
