Even the most seasoned therapists experience compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burn-out in the provision of psychotherapy, particularly with children impacted by complex trauma, multiple forms of adversity, and developmental delays. The instructor of this class, a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor and Board Certified Art Therapist incorporates play and art therapy theory and technique into Françoise Mathieu’s compassion fatigue workshop model to help clinical supervisors build therapist resiliency in supervision and training, to include practical strategies that draw on knowledge of trauma-informed services, mindfulness practice, modulation of empathy, development of compassion satisfaction, and self-care.  0.5 unit.

Other Credits: 7 hours of continuing education credit
