Second Compassion Fatigue Conference ...

Just a reminder that the Second Annual Compassion Fatigue Conference will be held in Kingston, Ontario again on June 12 and 13.

This year, the focus will be on organizational health and hands-on wellness strategies, with keynote speakers including Joan Borysenko, a world renown author and psychoneuroimmunologist, who will speak on stress and burnout; Linda Duxbury, professor at the School of Business at Carlton University, Ottawa, whose topic is work-life balance; and humourist, Paul Huschilt who will help you to enjoy humour in the workplace.

Other workshop topics will include:

  • mindfulness, 
  • working with mandalas, 
  • moral distress, 
  • resilience, 
  • understanding conflict in trauma-informed workplaces, 
  • work-life balance, 
  • and humour for workplace wellness.

I won't be going to the conference this year, myself, (self care at the cottage has won out over time in town) but I would love to hear how those of you who've attended the two days have enjoyed the experience. Why not leave a comment here on your return to encourage others to attend next year?

So, if you are interested in attending a great Compassion Fatigue Conference in one of my favourite cities in the world, you can go to the conference website for more information and to register.
