Caring too much can hurt. Your utmost priority is to take care of others, but what about yourself?
When we focus on loved ones we often start to feel burn-out. Apathy, isolation, bottled up emotions and substance abuse head a long list of symptoms associated with the secondary traumatic stress disorder now labeled: Compassion Fatigue.
While the effects of Compassion Fatigue can cause pain and suffering, learning to recognize and manage its symptoms is the first step toward healing. Join Lisa Doyle; RN, BSN, CMC as she breaks down the signs and how to combat Compassion Fatigue.

Feedback from Compassion Fatigue Workshop attendees:
“I cannot express enough my thanks for this webinar workshop. It was as if you were speaking to me personally. I knew I had been experiencing “something” more than just burnout, and now I have a name for it! I’m caring for my elderly mother and I can’t thank you enough for giving me hope and inspiration.” – Compassion Fatigue Workshop Attendee
