Burnout, an FFI Conversation

What it is and how to combat it in your professional life

Presented by: Friends Forever International

About the Event
Linda will talk to us about ways to immunize ourselves against burn out, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. She helps people bring a non-judgmental approach and compassion to their work without carrying the extra burdens that can come with working with people who have experienced trauma. The presentation also includes ways that organizations can be more responsive to employees and volunteers who are experiencing compassion fatigue and burnout.
