Compassion Resilience Toolkit For Health and Human Services

How to Implement

This toolkit offers information, activities, and resources for organization leadership and staff to understand, recognize, and minimize the experience of compassion fatigue and to increase compassion resilience.

The authors of the toolkit are a collaborative team made up of classroom teachers, student services personnel, administrative leaders, and community mental health practitioners.

The toolkit is designed for flexible implementation by facilitators within their organization. Each of the 12 sections can be briefly implemented in a 30-60 minute session (with individual reflection and application resources) or more time can be dedicated for in-depth learning experiences. Options for delivery include: small group circle conversations, large group presentations with breakouts for application discussions, online small groups, individual activities/reflection or a combination of all of these.

A team of at least one organization leader and the appointed facilitator(s) will need to make decisions about the time that will be dedicated to the toolkit activities and topics that might be a higher priority.

With that direction, the facilitator selects activities to match the needs, characteristics, and dedicated focus of the group. The organization leader engages the rest of the leadership team in conversations on the leadership perspective and responsibility related to toolkit concepts.
