New England: Compassion Fatigue Workshop This Weekend!
Dear New England Posse,
Just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be in Wakefield, MA this Saturday, October 3rd giving a full day compassion fatigue workshop hosted by the New England Dog Training Club.
This seminar, designed for people who work or volunteer with animals in any capacity, is open to the public and you can earn CEs!
I’ve got all kinds of things planned for this weekend….interested?
We’ll be covering six strategies and numerous tools we can use to transform and manage our experience of compassion fatigue, so that we can continue to do ethical, effective, and sustainable work with animals.
The full day seminar identifies what compassion fatigue is, its symptoms, and contributing factors. We’ll also take a look at stress management and self-care practices. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in discussions, experiential activities, take self-assessments, reflect and connect with the positive aspects of your work, practice a stress-reduction technique or two, and create a self-care plan.
We’ll be busy learning how to be well, while we do good!
Spots are still available. Join us, won’t you?
