A 3 hour training event with Angela Thomas Jones, LCMHC, MLADC, LCS, CCFP, RYT  

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:30 a.m.)

PRESENTATION:  The nation is in crisis; 96% of respondents to a recent NH provider needs survey meet ‘at risk’ criteria for compassion fatigue and 70.59% of those respondents are concerned that patient safety is sometimes compromised due to workforce shortage.   Despite a behavioral health workforce shortage, there is an increased demand for clinical services. While at the same time, clinicians and counseling programs are expected to “do more with less” but in a faster timeframe (i.e. less time, less staff and less financial resources). Pressure to meet treatment demands, overwhelms, and implies clinician self-sacrifice. This attitude leads to compassion fatigue and burnout; it is time for a change! Clinician self-care is an ethical responsibility.

Training Outcomes:

  • Learn evidence-informed practices that are effective at reducing compassion fatigue risks
  • Learn how to incorporate evidence-informed techniques into clinical supervision sessions that address compassion fatigue and burnout
  • Gain knowledge about effective clinician self-care as well as clinical practice that assures patient safety

PRESENTER:   Angela Thomas Jones, LCMHC, MLADC, LCS, RYT, CCFP; Motivated by lived experience, in 2018, Angela co-founded a grassroots effort to implement effective practices for clinician self-care as a means to also improve quality patient care.  She is Certified as a Compassion Fatigue Professional and specializes in Trauma-sensitive Mind/Body practices.  She is licensed in NH as a Mental Health Counselor and Addiction Professional as well as a Clinical Supervisor with 30 years of experience.  She is a member of the LADC Board Peer Review Committee and is Chairperson for the NH Association for Addiction Professionals Ethics Committee where she spearheaded re-defining the function and role of the Ethics Committee based on research from the American Psychological Association identifying the Stress-Distress Continuum (2006) and the National Academy of Medicine’s Call to Action regarding Clinician Well-being.  Since 1991, she has contributed to the New England Institute of Addiction Studies, is an Adjunct Professor for Plymouth State University Counseling Program and travels nationally teaching on the topic of Clinician Well-being.  In 2009, she published a literature review; Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Practice after completing Post-Graduate Certification in Traumatic Studies at The Trauma Center of the Justice Resource Institute formerly directed by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, MD.
