Title: Recapturing a Part of Yourself: Overcoming Empathy Fatigue
Lead Presenter: Cara Wiley
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Room: Jr. Ballroom D, DECC
Abstract: 'In traditional Native American teaching, it is said that each time you heal someone you give away a piece of yourself until at some point, you will require healing' (Stebnicki, 2008). Giving away a piece of yourself is empathy; giving away too much without taking care of ourselves is what we call empathy fatigue. In western based culture, we focus and teach empathy based practices for academic advising. As we develop greater awareness of empathy fatigue we will be better equipped to combat it. Come to this session to learn what is empathy fatigue, review and practice tools on how to recapture the pieces that you have given away to heal others, and set a personal goal on how you can overcome with greater self-compassion.
