Compassion Fatigue Education & Prevention Forum
1001 Crooked Hill Rd.
Brentwood, NY 11717
I am excited to announce a new program my office will be hosting along with the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, which will focus on compassion fatigue training and education for first responders and those working under traumatic circumstances.
Individuals who help others during their time of need do so at great personal risk, which is often difficult to recognize and accept. Working in such tense situations can lead to physical, emotional and mental stress.
Identifying and addressing the signs of compassion fatigue are the first steps towards ensuring that our first responders always remain in a positive and healthy state of mind so that they can continue to best serve our community.
If you or someone you know may be interested, please consider joining us at this informative training session on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at Suffolk Community College Grant Campus in Brentwood from 5-7pm.
Please note that all participants will receive 2 free hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME). For additional information, please contact my District Office at (631) 665-2311.
