Burnout & Compassion Fatigue

"Renewal and Resilience: Overcoming Burnout & Compassion Fatigue with Care and Strength."

Does it seem everyone wants a piece of you? Are you emotionally and physically exhausted or you could care less? Loss of empathy, sleep disruption, intrusive thoughts, or poor concentration can be indicators that Burnout or Compassion Fatigue is creeping silently, turning your life upside down.  Dr. Charles Figley, who researched compassion fatigue, describes it as the "cost of caring" for those in emotional and physical pain.

Both burnout and compassion fatigue take their toll on your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. When it happens, it can leave you drained and depleted of your passion, concern, and empathy for others. However, different concerns can co-exist. Professions in health care, pet care, child care, mental health providers, first responders, and other public facing professions, as well as those who care for family members who are chronically and critically ill are very susceptible.

Haven Point clinicians understand the weight of hard work and the cost of caring. We want to assist you in reviving good health and healing so you can thrive in your role at both work and home. 

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmr of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time"
