October 3, 2015

Support from Outside the Walls #10

This training will be an opportunity to explore compassion fatigue. What is it? How does it affect us? How does it impact the work we are trying to do? As we learn about some of the psychology of compassion fatigue, participants will also have the opportunity to talk about their personal experiences, build on their own knowledge and tell their stories in ways that help them heal.
