The Fullest Well
From Fatigue to Fulfillment
Vitamin C Healing's The Fullest Well: From Fatigue to Fulfillment 3 hour self-paced online course was created as a solution for the helping professional who finds himself or herself mindlessly moving throughout the workday with the mission of helping clients suffering from trauma, serious mental illness, and chronic conditions.
Meet your instructor:
I remember there was a time in my career as a social worker where I would come home each day feeling exhausted and empty after helping numerous people. I would cry after conference calls and in the car on my way to client visits. Then I would cry because I felt guilty for being exhausted. I became a master at appearing like I had it together. I tried going to bed early, taking bubble baths, getting massages, and increasing my exercise regimen. These techniques were temporary fixes for a recurrent problem.
After attending a trauma conference, I learned I was struggling with Compassion Fatigue. I knew I was not alone in this struggle as I witnessed several colleagues just like you suffering from similar symptoms. You've probably also experienced daily battles with emotional distress and apathy from the constant demands of caring for others, witnessing pain, suffering and trauma, and the lack of organizational support. Loom, doom, guilt, exhaustion, and apathy do not have to be waiting in the wings for you.
Helping doesn't have to hurt and empathy doesn't have to be exhausting.

I found the training itself to be really relaxing; you have such a lovely calm demeanor (and voice!). I will look out for more of your training in the future. I always find internal family systems theory interesting and the way you approached it was so compassionate and helpful.
I had an epiphany!! To be honest, I truly got a lot out of each module. it is self-paced which gave me the opportunity to pause, digest, internalize and just let it marinate in my spirit before moving on to the next modules. Thank You.

I really liked that there was material/workbook we could save, download, and print to be able to refer to in the future. The tangible skills were really helpful.
