Certification Training for Compassion Fatigue Professionals (CCFP) by Eric Gentry
Are you feeling burned out from your work as a professional caregiver?
As internationally recognized trauma treatment leader Eric Gentry, Ph.D., LMHC, explains, “There is no way to do professional caregiving without it having some negative impacts on our lives. I have watched many excellent caregivers in this field say ‘enough’ and leave the field because of compassion fatigue burn out.”
When a caregiver experiences compassion fatigue, what follows are feelings of hopelessness, stress and a sense of inadequacy.
That’s why Dr. Gentry designed this powerful Compassion Fatigue Professional Certification (CCFP) Online Training. Based on 15 years of break-through research with compassion fatigue, this online training will help you recapture your sense of mission, purpose, hope and joy as a caregiver.
Through this training, you’ll learn the evidence-based professional resiliency skills to eliminate stress and combat the emotional demands of your work.
Plus you’ll meet the educational requirements for International Association of Trauma Professionals (IATP) Compassion Fatigue Professional Certification so you can teach your patients how to live more hopeful and joyful lives.
Join Dr. Gentry and start feeling reinvigorated in your work to end your patients’ suffering.
