Helping the Helper for Staff
Helping the Helper is aimed at staff and volunteers. This programme introduces and explores the symptoms and consequences of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burnout. Gaining an understanding of what these conditions are, and how they differ from each other increases the ability to be proactive in acting to minimise risk. Helping the Helper also focuses heavily on the importance of strong practical self-care practices, because they support resilience and overall well-being.
