ANM-304 - Compassion Fatigue

Compassion Fatigue is the natural consequence of stress resulting from caring for and helping traumatized or suffering people or animals. This course specifically addresses the impact on animal professionals who themselves experience feelings of fear, pain, and suffering (in the form of intrusive thoughts, nightmares, loss of energy, and perception of threats at home or at work) as a result of caretaking and being exposed to traumatized animals. This course is designed to provide those who work in high-stress animal professions with the facility to effectively manage and address their emotions on an ongoing basis.
