Caring with Compassion Course

Taking care of ourselves is essential for the unique role we play as a Child Abuse Medical Professional. Mandy A. O’Hara, MD, MPH, TCTSY-F, a board certified child abuse pediatrician, a CHAMP Mentor and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center, has developed the course Caring with Compassion. It provides the opportunity to pause, reflect, and expand your self-knowledge and perspective. It is an opportunity to deepen your self-compassion. Accompanying this course is a 12-minute Trauma Sensitive Yoga Chair Practice video as a step to begin addressing secondary traumatic stress that is often held in the body.
