Live Workshops

What if there was a way to help your staff combat compassion fatigue and build resilience? This live training allows your employees and/or volunteers to gain valuable tools to help them manage compassion fatigue, which in turn can lead to improved work performance, less sick days, decreased turnover, and ultimately, better care of the animals.

‚ÄčThis interactive self-care workshop is geared toward all animal professionals, including shelter staff, animal control officers, veterinarians, vet techs, euthanasia techs, rescue workers, volunteers, foster parents, wildlife rehabilitators, management, support staff, and all others involved in animal welfare or animal rights.


Purchase the Book!

"An excellent read for anyone in the animal welfare field. Allows the reader to really work through their emotions in a way that is specific to animal welfare and written by someone who understands. In a world where working in animal welfare can be so heavily judged, it is comforting to take a step back and self-reflect without judgement, guided by someone who has been there."
