Addressing Compassion Fatigue, Burnout & Vicarious Trauma

Compassion fatigue, burnout and vicarious trauma are common occupational hazards in high care, high stress and often high trauma work.   Awareness is prevention when it comes to these occupational hazards! Both individuals and organizations can suffer significantly if these hazards are not addressed in effective and informed ways.  Discover how to prevent and mitigate the risks associated with these costs of caring!

The aftermath of the Covid pandemic has left many front-line healthcare and helping professionals understandably feeling burnt out.  By offering inspirational and educational sessions to your staff and leaders, you can help individuals and teams tap into their resilience, hope and well-being.  This matters!


I am passionate about supporting people who make a difference to thrive now and into the future.  Most of my sessions are now offered virtually through Zoom webinars and other online platforms that make accessibility easy and convenient. And who doesn’t want more ease?!

The mental health of our healthcare workers, first responders, and front-line workers matters greatly.

Caring for Caregivers is critically important at the best of times, it is an absolute essential during this post-pandemic time.

Organizations, leaders, managers and front-line staff alike must find new ways to engage their resilience to cope with the demands and job stress that can be brought about in ever changing work environments.  Healthcare, human and social services, education, and various non-profit organizations and professionals must make caring for caregivers a top priority.
