26 May Compassion Fatigue Resources Now Available
A Way For Gluckstein Lawyers To Give Back To The Community
On May 13th, 2020, we were scheduled to offer our annual Compassion Fatigue Conference. An event that always provided a way for Gluckstein Lawyers to give back to the community through relevant and engaging presenters, networking opportunities and practical takeaways. It has been a tradition that all of us look forward to and eagerly plan for with a tremendous air of excitement.
Unfortunately, this year we were unable to hold our event, needing to cancel it as part of Covid-19 social distancing requirements. We, along with our planned attendees, were all so disappointed, especially feeling like if there was ever a year where we needed come Compassion Fatigue resources and supports, this was the year. Healthcare workers, frontline support workers, caregivers all feeling the stresses of providing care to their patients or loved ones during this pandemic.
As a way of trying to give back somehow instead of our live conference, we decided to host a virtual CF webinar with Dr. Parmjit Singh, to present to our registrants about how to manage extreme stress during a crisis. We were thrilled to have a full house for our webinar, with many requests to make the recording available after so participants could share, view again, or make available for those who were not able to attend in person.
We were grateful for the positive feedback we received, including requests for us to explore other topics.
Here are a few quotes from our participants:
“Dr. Singh is a very good speaker. I have been to similar seminars before but I still picked up new and very valuable information ( the idea of keeping techniques minimal was so helpful)”
“ Thank you for the outstanding workshop! Gluckstein’s commitment to caring for everyone during this time is so wonderful. I really appreciate the information and look forward to implementing the techniques from Dr. Singh”
The webinar has now been uploaded to our Gluckstein Lawyers YouTube channel.

If you are looking for additional resources to help you through this challenging time, Dr. Singh has a podcast on self-compassion titled Passing Clouds. You might find some useful supplemental information in this podcast.

We plan to offer more webinars soon from a variety of speakers.
We hope to continue providing support and resources related to Compassion Fatigue in one form or another. Stay tuned for more information!
