Continuing education credits for licensed mental health professionals offered for “Evidence Based Practices for Managing Compassion Fatigue”

In conjunction with Cameron University’s current academic festival, “Care and Health: A Generational Approach,” the Department of Psychology will present “Evidence Based Practices for Managing Compassion Fatigue.” The virtual workshop is open to licensed mental health professionals, who are eligible to earn three hours of continuing education credits. The event takes place on Friday, March 1, from 1 to 4 p.m. via Zoom.

There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required by Friday, February 23. To register, go to https://www.cameron.edu/festival and click on “Departmental Festival Events.” Registrants will receive a secure Zoom link.

Mental health professionals are at risk of burnout from being constantly exposed to their client’s trauma and mental health concerns. The Components for Enhancing Clinician Experience and Reducing Trauma (CE-CERT) model is an evidence-based model that equips clinicians with tools to mitigate the impact of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. Kayley Saunders, LPC, will teach practical skills to clinicians to help them to manage the impact of vicarious trauma acquired in the process of providing mental health services.

This virtual workshop is offered in partnership with the Southwest Region of the Oklahoma Counseling Association, who will be responsible for certifying the continuing education credits.
