This workshop offers a deep dive into exploring compassion fatigue, burnout,
vicarious trauma, their impact (e.g., physical,
emotional, mental, and spiritual), and the ethical responsibilities of self-care faced by mental health clinicians. This workshop will expand on our popular workshop The Ethics of Self-Care: An Art-based Approach by focusing on types of resilience, including vicarious resilience. Topics will include stressors, ethics, compassion fatigue, burnout, self-care, resilience, and vicarious resilience. These topics will be explored through the hands-on application of creative and expressive arts, offering practical exercises for mental health clinicians to apply to their self-care routines.

  1. Participants will gain an understanding of the ethical responsibilities of self-care.
  2. Participants will learn about types of resilience.
  3. Participants will learn about compassion fatigue, burnout, and vicarious trauma on professional and personal health levels.
  4. Participants will learn practical applications of self-care.
