STARability Virtual Compassion Fatigue Series for Caregivers
Friday from 3:00 PM - 3:45 PM EST
Caregivers, we see you and invite you to our free 4-part series on Compassion Fatigue. This free series offers participants the opportunity to learn more about this common condition and identify signs and symptoms while developing tangible strategies to promote resiliency and wellness. These sessions will build on one another, so please Save the Dates: Feb. 12 & 19 and March 5.
In traditional Native American teaching, it is said that each time you heal someone, you give away a piece of yourself until, at some point, you will require healing. Those of us who are caregivers, whether for a family member or professional capacity, provide "healing" every day. The term Compassion Fatigue describes the physical, emotional, and spiritual exhaustion that results from caring for others.
