'Compassion Fatigue' is a 1-day course for the benefit of health professionals from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas in the UK and Ireland.
It is the only Compassion Fatigue training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams/organisations and can be attended face-to-face or online.
This 6 hour course explores the crucial yet often overlooked issue of compassion fatigue and is specifically designed for health professionals in both physical and mental health spheres. It examines the subtle signs of compassion fatigue and how it differs from burnout and vicarious traumatization. It offers self-assessment, real-world case studies, and prevention and intervention strategies, and invites delegates to share experiences and solutions. It ultimately aims to equip delegates with personal coping strategies and institutional resources to combat compassion fatigue and maintain professional enthusiasm and commitment without compromising well-being. It simultaneously aims to help delegates safeguard their passion for caregiving and ensure a sustainable and fulfilling career.
The course is suitable for all health professionals at risk of compassion fatigue, which means almost all health professionals, whether involved in physical health or mental health.
Session 1: Understanding Compassion Fatigue.
Session 2: The Impact on Professionals
Session 3: Self-Assessment and Awareness.
Session 4: Prevention Strategies.
Session 5: Intervention and Coping Mechanisms.
Session 6: Moving Forward – Sustaining Professional Compassion.
Closing Session: Q&A and Resource Sharing.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher .
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments APT courses have received.
"I have heard so much about APT courses but have never had the privilege of attending one until now. I have to say that in 18 years working in mental health I have attended many courses but these past 3 days have surpassed all of them. The information and manner in which it was presented was excellent. My advice to anyone who has not been on an APT course is 'get yourself on one.' If you had only one course to do in the remainder of your career do this one. Thanks.”
"I have actually stopped applying for any non APT courses as they far exceed the content and presentation of any other NHS course I have been on in my 20+ years' experience of psychiatry. Many thanks."
