Compassion Fatigue and Self-Care for Medical Assistants
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, health care professionals are at an increased risk for developing compassion fatigue as they attend to the needs of patients. In their role, medical assistants promote and model healthy coping behaviors. However, health care professionals often ignore their own needs and warning signs associated with compassion fatigue in the workforce.

Join Sandra Gonzalez, PhD, LCSW, in this two-part webinar series as she breaks down compassion fatigue and discusses how to recognize warning signs, like risky alcohol use, and how to cope with compassion fatigue by using a comprehensive self-care and wellness plan. By the end of the series, participants will be better prepared to identify and manage symptoms of compassion fatigue.
