In 2018 you can catch me in-person presenting at the following conferences:

2018 Note: I’m currently in the process of redesigning my workshops and will not be booking any new workshops at this time. I offer a very limited number of in-person workshops in the northern New England area. If you’re more than 2 hours outside of Portland, Maine, we can get together for a live, private group webinar! More details here.

Compassion in Balance: Understanding + Managing Compassion Fatigue 

Compassion Fatigue is the natural consequence of stress resulting from caring for and helping traumatized or suffering people or animals. It’s an occupational hazard for professionals and volunteers, but there are proven strategies to help us address this unique stress. This workshop will give you and your staff the tools to succeed in this challenging work.

Compassion in Balance identifies what compassion fatigue is, its symptoms, and contributing factors. We examine stress management and self care, including practical on-the-job techniques.

Participants will have the opportunity to take a self assessment, reflect and connect with the positive aspects of their work, and create a self-care plan during the session.
