What is Compassion Fatigue Specialist Training?

Our Compassion Fatigue Specialist Training (CFST) is an intensive Compassion Fatigue Resiliency course developed with the caring professional, paraprofessional, volunteer and other caregivers in mind. This didactic and experiential course is designed to provide professionals with in-depth understanding of Compassion Fatigue & Recovery Interventions using the five-session Accelerated Recovery Program (ARP, Gentry, Baranowsky & Dunning, 1997).

In this sixth course of Clinical Traumatology designation, participants will learn deep skills for helping people experiencing “Burn-out”, “Compassion Fatigue” and “Vicarious Trauma”? This course provides you with practical skills for peeling back the layers of working with trauma survivors.

With our state-of-the-art technology, you will have unlimited access to this online, self-paced course for 160 days (as opposed to a 1- to 2-day training session) AND support all along the way.

Your online courses are both illuminating and practical. As a therapist I found the courses on clinical traumatology most helpful in terms of increasing my knowledge base and skill sets … more importantly, my clients will benefit the most as a result of what I have learned and will be able to apply when treating the traumatized. Great work… Dr. Baranowsky! Daniel Harris, Osoyoos, BC.,  Canada
