Engage in regular supervision
With regular supervision you can hope to experience:
A dedicated space and time to regularly reflect on your work/life balance, work impacts, develop self awareness and develop skills and knowledge. Increase your ability to define and identify what can lead to professional burn out and compassion fatigue. Develop your understanding of how vicarious and secondary trauma works. Increase your ability to develop your resilience and protective factors against the negative effects of professional helping. Explore the use of your ‘self’ in case practice, extend your skills into best practice strategies and deepen your knowledge base and work role.
