Compassion Fatigue is "the profound emotional and physical erosion that takes place when helpers are unable to refuel and regenerate." (Francoise Mathieu, 2008)
Caring for patients, clients and their families takes a heavy emotional toll on health care professionals and caregivers. This seminar will provide tips and strategies for coping with these stresses and will teach the importance of a work-life balance and relaxation. The Compassion Fatigue Seminar will take place on Friday, October 29, 2010 at the Renaissance Skydome Hotel (Rogers Centre) from 8 am-4 pm.
Remember, it's okay to take care of yourself too! Sometimes you do have to put yourself first, in order to help others later.
