Overcoming Empathy Fatigue

For whom:
Education Professionals (E.g.: Teachers, Counsellors, Administrators, Heads of Department, School Staff Developers)

Why should you attend:
Many schools experience:

  • Empathy fatigue among staff

  • Alarming levels of anxiety and depression

  • Teacher burnout

  • High levels of bullying

  • Lack of community engagement

  • Lack of perceived parental  and community support

  • Lack of eagerness to learn

  • Lack of eagerness to care for one another

  • Relentless demands for academic results


Discussion points include:

  • Highlighting research understandings about “empathy burnout” versus the potential “warmth glow” of compassion

  • How do we battle with empathy fatigue?

  • How do we tend to ourselves as educators?

  • How do we achieve work-life balance?

  • Nurturing our compassion through the practice of imaging and drawing upon feelings for a “loved one”

    Plus! Exercises on nurturing our compassion.
