Compassion Fatigue Training - Limerick, 20th April 2017

This training day takes place on the 20th April in the Clayton Hotel, Limerick and will consist of looking at those who, by 'giving too much' while working in in their profressional capacity in the caring sector, can suffer from Compassion Fatigue, which is a type of burnout, but one that mainly stems from becoming too emotionally attached to the people we work with. Professionals will reflect on their day-to-day working routine while working out what areas could be managed better in relation to self-care.
