This webinar will inform participants what compassion fatigue is and what factors lead to it.

Compassion fatigue is inevitable and very common for first responders and caregivers due to their repeated exposure to stressful events and trauma.

Learning about the signs and symptoms will enable participants to increase awareness within themselves and or support colleagues who might be suffering in silence.
