This video seminar features Paula J. Horky RN MN, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Child & Adolescent Mental Health Program. Paula has worked in the child, youth and adult areas of mental health programs in both urban and rural areas. She is currently a Clinical Nurse Specialist for Child & Adolescent Mental Health Programs. Paula discovered the work of Dr. Charles Figley in 1992 and realized she had to stop taking her ability to be compassionate for granted and begin to consciously incorporate strategies to prevent or at the very least mitigate the effects of Compassion Fatigue. She used her time in an MN program to learn more about Compassion Fatigue and have since made a commitment to inform colleagues about this issue.
