Event description
Author, Michelle Graff will explore the root causes of compassion fatigue and practical ideas for cultivating compassion and resilience.

About this Event

There is a crisis in the human service industry. Helping professionals are bearing the weight of repeated exposure to secondary trauma and chronic stress. Though compassion fatigue and the need for self-care is gaining attention, efforts often ignore one key factor. Compassion fatigue is not just a problem of the individual. Organizations, too, suffer from compassion fatigue, creating a culture that can leave the helping professional feeling as if there is a void of compassion.

The good news is that compassion is renewable.

This hour webinar will explore the role our brain and neurological responses play in compassion fatigue and offer practical steps for restoring compassion for both individuals and helping organizations.
