Whether you’re a wildlife rehabilitator or a part-time advocate, supporting non-human animals can be physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting. For mental health and healthcare workers, this is recognized as ‘compassion fatigue.’ Understanding what compassion fatigue is and learning how to recognize it is only the first step in keeping yourself, and those around you, healthy and happy. The various strategies for managing stresses, gaining a deeper understanding of what self-care really is, and learning how and when to walk away are vital.
Kate Rizzuto, B.A., is a Concurrent Disorders Outreach Counsellor. Kate’s experience in the mental health and healthcare industries combined with her personal connections to The Fur-Bearers and other advocacy efforts make her the ideal facilitator for this webinar.
