• Compassion Fatigue & Burnout, April 11

This session will discuss the fatigue and emotional exhaustion that can sometimes come from caring too much, for too long. Is there actually such a thing as too much caring? We’ll discuss and acknowledge emotions that many individuals feel when working in the non-profit sector, including warning signs, how to address root causes and tips for regaining your balance. Kim Dinwiddie, Purple Ink, is the presenter. The session is 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and will be held at The Inn at DePauw, Greencastle.
