Recently I held a Compassion Fatigue Information Session in Smiths Falls. It was attended by 30 people from a great cross section of services. Yes, I padded the numbers with a few family members, but they enjoyed the message also!
We had staff from health, childcare, youth services, Ontario Works, United Way, senior support services and education. These people were very supportive about my message and certainly admitted to recognizing themselves and others with some of the stories I told, and the information I provided.
I am very grateful to all who attended and I hope you will take the information and keep the conversation going in your workplace and family about Compassion Fatigue, Vicarious Trauma and Burnout.
I am planning information sessions in Ottawa, Brockville, Kanata and Carleton Place in the near future. Please contact me if you are interested in participating in these events.
