This event is open to the public – you do not have to be affiliated with a nonprofit to attend

Compassion fatigue is the result of working among intense problems in our communities and experience trauma exposure response. Witnessing the hardship of others is a normal part of work for many nonprofit professionals, and presents challenges to emotional and physical well-being.

This workshop addresses resiliency-building techniques to effectively manage compassion fatigue in a way that supports a healthy work culture. It includes tactical coaching, immediate opportunities to practice skills, and help developing a long-term plan for sustained well-being.

Most importantly, this workshop isn’t just about compassion fatigue and how the symptoms present themselves – it is also about what you can do now, in specific behavioral terms, to become resilient and thrive.  

This workshop provides tactical coaching, immediate opportunities to practice skills, and helps you develop a long-term plan for sustained well-being.

This workshop is a beginning. You will gain insight into yourself and how you think, what is most meaningful to you in your work, and how you can positively influence yourself in any context.
