Wed, 3 May 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM MDT
What can professionals do to protect themselves from the difficult stories that they work with on a regular basis, limited resources and high volume of work, while still remaining effective and compassionate?
There is now over two decades of research proving that working in high stress, trauma-exposed professions such as community mental health, law enforcement and health care carries elements of risk to the care provider and can take a cumulative tolls on us as individuals and as teams.
Françoise is the Co-Executive Director of TEND, and divides her time between public speaking engagements and working with organizations to educate their teams about burnout, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, high stress workplaces, self-care and helper wellness. Françoise is one of the leaders of Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma education in Canada.
