Caregiver Compassion Fatigue

The evaluation and post-test can be found at: https://vte.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9uYbDQY1EIgyQXH


The negative impact of traumatic events can extend beyond those who directly experienced the trauma to family members and professionals who support the traumatized individual.  As such, military family caregivers are prime at risk for a phenomenon called compassion fatigue or secondary traumatic stress. The experience of compassion fatigue can lead to impairment in social and occupational functioning. In this presentation Dr. Bride will introduce attendees to the concept of compassion fatigue, describe the symptoms of compassion fatigue, and discuss strategies to minimize the negative impact of compassion fatigue.
