The compassion many of us feel for those we help can affect us in both positive and negative ways. Overcoming Compassion Fatigue is designed to encourage caregivers and helping professionals to invest the time needed to practice good self-care, model and teach the importance of good self-care to clients, disconnect from the work day while at home and find renewal in their work. These practices will allow helping professionals to experience more balance and satisfaction in their personal and professional lives in order to be more effective with clients and build stronger communities.
*A light lunch will be provided.
