  3. To understand the importance of tenderness in professional boundary work
  4. To explore how vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and stress may challenge the notion of being tender with self
  5. To identify the clues from our body that tenderness is required
  6. To identify and practice strategies for maintaining boundaries with tenderness for self and clients (thus decreasing risk of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue)
