Compassion in Balance: Understanding + Managing Compassion Fatigue 

3 and 6 hours | Can be tailored to your organization’s needs

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.

I specialize in working with animal care and welfare groups!

2017 Note: I’m currently in the process of redesigning my workshops and will not be booking any new events this year. I’ll be ready to roll with all new trainings in 2018, so please check back at the end of 2017 for updated workshop info!

I’m available for 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.

To book me for a compassion fatigue workshop please contact me. Let me know the time frame of your event and budget. I’d also love to know more about you & your organization!
