Reducing Compassion Fatigue by Accessing the Heart

Numerous studies have shown that human service providers are at significant risk for suffering burnout and compassion fatigue, especially when their clients are working through the effects of trauma.

Through our courses such as Foundations of Heart-Mind Alignment: Understanding Heart Based Care and the Dynamics of Burnout and Compassion Fatigue and Learning to Live in Heart-Mind Alignment: Enhancing Resiliency and Preventing Burnout and Compassion Fatigue, human services providers are taught a combination of theory and practical techniques to alleviate stress and while maintaining healthy boundaries.

Personal & Work-Related Benefits of Heart Based Training

All participants in our training programs take pre/post self-assessments measuring stress, relaxation, worry and empathy concerning clients and work/life satisfaction. In aggregate, hundreds of participants have reported marked improvements after completing Heart Based Therapeutics training. 

Vaya Health, a managed care organization providing North Carolina Medicaid funds to mental health agencies, conducted a Kirkpatrick Model of evaluation of human service providers who completed our Support Specialist certification and training in True Source of Love Meditation. A six month post-training follow-up assessment revealed high levels of sustained impact including increased positive feelings, greater resiliency, enhanced well-being and job/work satisfaction, improved interpersonal relationships, and decreased burnout. Additionally, while it’s heartening that the impact of our training was sustained over time, our meditation study with MAHEC also demonstrates that significant benefits can occur even after a one-day training.
