The 12th Annual CACGA “One Team” Conference:
The MDT Response to Child Abuse & Neglect
Keynote Speaker – Amy Cunningham
October 15 – 16, 2018 – Athens, GA
We are so fortunate, and humbled, to host one of the very best conferences in the United States,
designed to provide the most important, leading, and latest information for the incredible
professionals who respond to allegations of child sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect and exploitation.
This year’s Keynote Speaker, Amy Cunningham will speak on the subject of Compassion Fatigue. Amy
is passionate about inspiring people to love their work. Through leadership development, team
building, and strategic planning, Amy works to create a strong workplace in which individuals love what they do.
Amy discovered Compassion Fatigue in her work as a supervisor of a juvenile probation therapeutic group home. Not realizing it, Amy’s constant exposure to the troubled teens and their issues would change her, and she developed Compassion Fatigue. After several months of implementing strategies recommended for Post Traumatic Growth, she began to normalize and find healing.
In this talk you will learn how to differentiate between, stress, burnout, and Compassion Fatigue. You will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of Compassion Fatigue, identify the trajectory, and begin to implement the 5 resilience’s needed to assist you in achieving post traumatic growth.
