Description

Compassion is at the heart of your work, and at the heart of you. But excessive demands on your empathy can leave you feeling worn down, burdened by the suffering of others, and dreading your next day on the job.

This is Compassion Fatigue. It’s more than being overworked, and it’s a threat to the safety of your patients, your own wellbeing, your relationships, and your career.

This program is exactly what you need to regain purpose, fulfillment, and thrive in your profession – whether you’re already experiencing the emotional burnout of Compassion Fatigue, or want to make sure you avoid it.
