About the Event

About the Lecture:

This lecture will help us dive into an understanding, in how to safeguard ourselves from “compassion fatigue” and ‘vicarious trauma.’ We will learn ways to help create safe spaces for ourselves, when dealing with end-of-life care, and learn how to creatively infuse ‘resiliency in the field’ in end of life. 

We will examine our role of vulnerability and ritual in our area of compassionate care, and bring awareness to ways to keep us healthy in mind and body, and prevent us from burnout, or empathetic distress.

We will discuss researched and proven strategies of self-compassion and mindfulness to foster care for ourselves so we remain well, while serving in all end-of-life roles.
