Providing services and caregiving to struggling, victimized and traumatized children, youth, adults and the elderly is mentally and emotionally taxing. It can and will wear our bodies out. This book gives a seven-point blueprint to help promote self-care for your health and wellness.

In this book, you'll learn the P.I.B.S.E.R.A. technique to manage caregiver fatigue:

  1. Prepare
  2. Impact Control
  3. Bounce Back
  4. Say NO
  5. Evaluate
  6. Recharge
  7. Appreciate

Compassion Fatigue is a natural outcome of the intense nature of the help we provide. We each may feel the impact of secondary and vicarious traumatic stress and burnout. However, we can take steps to recover and increase our resilience for the ongoing highly intense moments in our work.
