This Workshop will help you have a bettter understanding
and better control over stress, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, burn out and their effects.

  Your Empathy Is A Resource – It Can Be Depleted And Restored.  
Here is an opportunity to Recharge and Refresh!

Pre Approved for 6 hours of Continuing Education

Please join us for a refreshing day to include education, conversation, validation and connection with people who do your work, who ‘get’ you.  Hosted by Tom Regehr and Becca Partington of CAST Canada, together we will honour the complex and emotional burdens of your work, validate the ideas with plain language, gather individual strategies for coping and thriving as you grow and are changed by your work.

You will leave with:

  • An understanding of empathy as a resource that can be depleted and refilled. Strategies to achieve balance.
  • An awareness of various, distinct stressors, how to recognize and manage them.
  • Grounding exercises to take into your work and personal life
  • Better strategies for long term self care, burn out prevention and compassion fatigue resiliency
  • An understanding that your approach to your work has more to do with the stress than the events.
  • Validation of the emotions involved in doing your work
  • A rejuvenated sense of wellbeing and hope


"This workshop has essential information, it evoked many reflections on
personal and professional levels.  I came back to work with a new
critical perspective of  how to identify burdens at work and how they
affect me. Tom and Becca had me hanging on every word ..."
