If you are a person who is committed to providing support, lending a listening ear, and offering a comforting presence to those who rely on you, then you know being a helper is deeply rewarding, but it can also be emotionally exhausting. At times, you might find yourself feeling emotionally drained, overwhelmed, or even detached from the very compassion that once fueled your passion to be a helper. This is what we call "compassion fatigue". In this workshop, we'll guide you through real-life scenarios and exercises that illustrate the concept of compassion fatigue. You'll gain a deep understanding of how it manifests, its impact on your mental and physical well-being, and most importantly, practical strategies to replenish your emotional reserves.
