Sustainable Caring

For people who are providing compassionate care during this period of collective grief and trauma.

Is caring for people who are suffering beginning to take its toll on you?

Since 2008 I've been teaching people how to protect themselves from compassion fatigue, acute stress and post-traumatic stress. 

But this time it's different.  The world is experiencing collective trauma and grief from Covid-19.  Care providers are experiencing the same trauma and grief as the people they are trying to help.  

Instead of my traditional 6-week Caring Safely online program, I'm offering a 4-week adaptation to include the most relevant concepts and strategies to help you during this unique period of time.  

This 4-week live, online, program will teach you strategies to protect yourself while providing compassionate care. You will learn trauma-informed strategies to reduce compassion fatigue, acute stress and post traumatic stress disorder.  

I know you need help now, so when you register for this program you will also receive access to a 4-hour previously recorded bonus training on trauma-informed compassion fatigue to learn strategies you can begin using immediately. 

In this 4-week program, you will learn:

  • The impacts of regularly providing care, including: compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, acute stress and post-traumatic stress.
  • A trauma-informed approach to protecting yourself from these experiences.
  • How to understand and manage the collective trauma and grief from Covid-19.
  • How to explain to your loved ones what you are experiencing and what you need in a way that is aimed to reduce their stress about you.
