Dear ARP Participants
The creation of the Compassion Fatigue Workshop has been a challenge for the developers of the Accelerated Recover Program for Compassion Fatigue. We have had to streamline a vast assortment of concepts and techniques. One way that we have found to save time without diminishing the quality of the training is to request that the participants complete a “pre-workshop package” prior to the workshop.
In preparation for the Workshop, complete the assessment instruments (scales and measures) in the Pre-Workshop Package based upon your professional and personal experiences of the past week. Score the results of these instruments using the enclosed Compassion Fatigue Assessment Profile. Finally, use the “Recording Form” found below to record your scores. We ask each participant to bring all completed materials to the training workshop. Completed materials will be explained fully and used as the basis of exercises and discussions during the workshop.
The Pre-workshop materials were compiled and developed to assist you in arriving at a deeper understanding of your own challenges both personally and professionally. It is the goal of the workshop developers to provide opportunities for you to increase self-awareness and from this awareness to develop strength. We believe that in knowing yourself you are better able to guide your own progress from Compassion Fatigue to Compassion Satisfaction.
