In 1998, Dr. Gentry—along with Anna Baranowsky, PhD and Kathleen Dunning, MSW—developed the first evidence-based treatment for the symptoms of Compassion Fatigue. In 1999, he developed the first single-day professional resilience training designed to simultaneously lessen CF symptoms, prevent future work-related stress and optimize professional functioning. Since then there have been over 10 peer-reviewed published studies that detail this effectiveness. While it is a well-known fact that all healthcare environments are toxic for the employees who work in them, FFPR has developed five (5) resilience skills (or “antibodies”) that has been demonstrated to provide the professional with immunity while working in these toxic environments.
