After you have completed your assigned readings and the questionnaires, respond to all of the discussion board questions. Take into consideration the requirements as you create your response.
There are several non-graded questionnaires for you to complete in this module. After you have finished them, consider what you have learned about yourself and your readiness to undertake the work of helping people cope with loss.
Consider the following questions:
What do you anticipate being most stressful to you in your role as a caregiver? What will be your biggest challenges?
What steps might you need to take in your own life in order to be helpful for clients while protecting yourself from burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue? Share as much of your insights as you feel comfortable.
