Self-Care and Wellness for Mental Health Providers:
The Antidote for Burnout and Compassion Fatigue
June 13 2019
Three (3) hours of CEUs are available for counselors, social workers and marriage and family therapists. Cost is $30 per person.
This training is offered at no charge to staff of agencies under contract with the Tri-County Board of Recovery and Mental Health Services (Miami, Darke, Shelby).
If you are registering one or more attendees from an agency NOT under contract with the Tri-County Board and wish to be invoiced, please contact Beth Adkins for procedure and registration code.
Each attendee must be registered individually.
Increased awareness, social acceptance, and sociopolitical awareness is bringing mental health into the mainstream of modern healthcare. However, the mental health system is only as strong as the providers of these needed services. This training session will help attendees recognize, learn, and understand the causes of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma to better treat our clients.
