Facing The Pain: Enhancing Resilience in Front-Line Workers

Tuesday 17 October 2017, 09:00am - 04:30pm

In order to be effective in our work with vulnerable populations we need to be grounded, hopeful and focused. How do we do that in the midst of unprecedented changes in our mental health/health care systems? We are now expected by the government, our agencies and our managers to work with more clients who have challenging multi-systemic issues within fewer sessions and in a context of external community resources drying up. Sandwiched between satisfying demanding government metrics and working with human suffering on a daily basis we are at risk. We are vulnerable to stress related illnesses, ethical/moral conflicts, burnout, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and PTSD.

We owe it to ourselves to figure out how we can maintain our balance while we confront these workplace realities.

In this session we will discuss 4 key strategies for enhancing and maintaining our capacity to be a conscious and resilient professional.
