Much of our focus as care providers is on making sure that those for whom we care experience compassion and empathy. While empathy impacts the receiver, it also impacts the giver. This 90 minute webinar will address the impact of empathy on those who care for others. It will also cover how to assess for – and deal with – burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma.  

Differentiate between burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma
Assess for symptoms pertaining to burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma
Identify reasons we do not always take care of ourselves
Identify coping skills to increase vicarious resilience

National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) Two-day Seminars:

Catholic Healthcare Ethics:
A Tradition of Compassion and Care for the Human Person

These seminars are intended to benefit health care workers, clergy, those involved in research in the life sciences, members of ethics committees, and others who provide spiritual support and counsel to patients and their families. Those interested in understanding and advancing the Church’s moral tradition in health care will also find them accessible and informative.

The organizing framework for the curriculum is the application of The Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services to critical issues raised in medicine and the life sciences. The seminars are structured to equip participants with the awareness to present, analyze, and resolve complex bioethical dilemmas encountered in clinical education and research from an interdisciplinary perspective. Faculty for each seminar includes NCBC Staff Ethicists and other distinguished experts.

The objectives of the Seminar include the training of those engaged in health care ministry and other interested individuals to effectively represent the Church's moral teaching in their various institutions as it is summarized in The Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

•  Describe how the inherent dignity of the human person serves as the objective basis for the Church's moral tradition in health care.
•  State the Church's moral teaching as expressed in The Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services to resolve complex dilemmas encountered in clinical education, practice and research.
•  Identify some of the resources available to health care workers and others involved in the health care ministry which provide guidance for the resolution of bioethical issues.
