Compassion Fatigue
Thursday, May 25, 2017 4:00:00 PM CDT - 6:00:00 PM CDT
Compassion fatigue is a term that describes the way caregivers who are constantly giving are frequently at risk for mental instability and illness. Compassion fatigue symptoms are displays of chronic stress including isolation from others, poor self-care, excessive blaming, or substance abuse. Recognition that one may have compassion fatigue can lead to insights of past difficulty, greater self care, and eventually healing and recovery.  Both family members of, and professionals working with, individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) will benefit from recognition of this concept and tools to intervene in strengthening their status as supports to those with BPD.
