Compassion Fatigue – The High Cost of Caring

Caring too much can hurt.  When caregivers focus on others without practicing healthy care giving they are at risk for developing “Compassion Fatigue”.  Come and learn how it is possible to practice healthy self-care while continuing to care for others.  We will explore the following topics:

  • What is Compassion Fatigue?
  • What are the causes?
  • What is healthy care giving?
  • Breaking the Compassion Fatigue cycle
  • Developing authentic, sustainable self-care practices
