WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to create a holistic system for health care practitioners (doctors, nurses, caregivers, acupuncturists, massage therapists, psychotherapists), family members, and anyone else who works with the elderly and dying to recognize, and prevent compassion fatigue from inadvertently damaging their patients or the families of their patients.
By bringing attention to the issue of compassion fatigue in a way that is easily accessible, each participant will:
- Learn the direct correlation that self compassion leads you to act with a compassionate heart.
- Learn the importance of self awareness through utilizing mindfulness techniques as a way to take a moment before acting.
- Learn the importance of self care, as you are where care starts.
- Renew the commitment to continue their work with compassionate care.
