    Fall

    October 7 – Vicarious Trauma and Compassion Fatigue

    Being a support to others during a challenging time is such an impactful experience. Join us as we define and identify signs of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma and explore strategies to lessen the effects when supporting others.

    November 11 – Taking Care at Work: How to keep going when the going gets tough

    For many of us, our work in the oncology arena is much more of a calling than simply a job. However, even those of us who are seasoned in our roles experience seasons of stress and strain that cause us to question, “Why do I keep coming back?” In our presentation today, we’ll discuss how to tell the difference between normal stress/grief vs burnout, how to allow ourselves space for those uncomfortable emotions, and how to create healthy boundaries and meaning in our work so that we can indeed keep coming back.

    December 6 – Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy Model

    Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy (MCP) was designed by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to help people with cancer create and sustain meaning in their lives. Learn about the benefits for your patients, including an improved sense of spiritual well-being and meaning, as well as decreased anxiety and sense of hopelessness.
