The Ethically Attuned Therapist

Compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatization are more than occupational hazards for those in the helping professions.

Feeling too much of our clients’ emotions and fears can lead to ethical transgressions because of our decreased cognitive ability and impaired judgment.

In this workshop recording, we’ll explore how to remain more ethically attuned by recognizing the clinical impact of compassion fatigue.
