As we approach the 2nd anniversary of Super Storm Sandy sweeping across our shores, our community continues to be remarkable in its Resiliency and Strength. Our continued recovery and care for family, friends and City, is accompanied by the impact of both our emotional and personal investments.

The more we care and the more we help, the more we are open to feeling emotionally fatigued and burned out, two prominent aspects of Compassion Fatigue.

Compassion fatigue need not be limited to professional helpers. Any of us who are empathetic to the traumas and pain of others can experience symptoms of Compassion Fatigue.

The good news is that we can pack our own “Self-care Go Bag” and develop strategies for minimizing the impact of Compassion Fatigue. We can continue our work helping our neighbors and our City both in our present Recovery and in future events.

 

If you have a disability and require accommodation/s to fully participate in this activity please contact Liz Treston for information 516-304-6452.

 

 

Presenter: Dr. Kimberly Johnson

 

Dr. Johnson recently completed certification as a Compassion Fatigue Therapist and Educator, joined the Green Cross Academy of Traumalogy,  Dr. Johnson is a member of the Nassau County Medical Reserve Corps and is on the Board of the Long Beach Community Organizations Active in Disasters.

I was very honored when Toy Centers Colleen Moseman dropped by last week to thank me for my help during their rebuild after Sandy. She gave me a very kind thank you note, hooked my wife and I up with Toy Center T-shirts, and presented me with this “Rock On ” trophy which is on my mantel now for my small part in sheet-“rocking” during their 2013 Sandy rebuild.

Thank you too, and I wish I could’ve helped more.

I’m very glad you’re back. I know it’s been a long recovery.

We can all show our support by attending. Please call (516) 889-8287 for tickets.
