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 andcombat 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.
This is an intermediate-level certification and course that is open to any care-giving professional or volunteer. By becoming a certified compassion fatigue professional you will be able to recapture your sense of mission, purpose, hope and joy in your office.
Master the 16 Certification Criteria for Compassion Fatigue Professionals
- Understanding of the historical developments in the field of care giving that gave rise to the concept of compassion fatigue (e.g., diagnosis of PTSD being included in DSM—III, vicarious trauma, burnout research, etc)

- Awareness of and ability to narrate one’s own personal/professional history that has lead to negative effects associated with professional and/or volunteer care giving.

- Knowing methods to resolve current and prevent future effects of burnout in professional care giving contexts.
- Skilled application of CBT tools (e.g., relaxation, exposure and perceptual change) to lessen the effects of compassion fatigue in one’s own life.

- Ability to understand and articulate the effects of compassion fatigue as being failed or thwarted professional maturation.
- Ability to understand and articulate the specific processes, trajectory and tasks associated with professional maturation and how developing these skills enhance resiliency.
- Comprehend and articulate a model of professional resiliency that allows the care provider to be healthy and maximally functional independent of environmental “demands” (internal vs. external control).
