Prevention and Treatment of Compassion Fatigue
Individual, Group sessions; and Weekend retreats - Compassion fatigue and compassion satisfaction may possibly be the side effects of the oldest profession in the world: care giving.

Thus, we all have the capacity to be affected by the negative attitudes and feelings of fatigue when we take care of others affairs before we tend to our own.
