Preventing Compassion Fatigue Wellness for Mental Health Providers Part 1

Resilience is the capacity to successfully adapt to challenging situations without long-term negative effects. Today, our students, teachers, and mental health providers need resilience more than ever to prevent compassion fatigue. Empathy-based distress can impair our functioning and our physical and mental health. Building resilience involves cultivating and harnessing resources to sustain well-being and to recover quickly when facing difficulty. In today’s unpredictable world, learning to adapt quickly has become a critical skill. Research shows that mindful awareness and compassion practices promote the cognitive and emotional strengths we need to build and maintain resilience.
