Compassion Fatigue And Healthy Boundaries Workshop

Carers WA

Carers WA presents an interactive workshop for carers exploring some of the common challenges experienced when caring for a family member, friend or loved one. Compassion fatigue is a natural part of the caring role and can often result in feeling burnt out. One of the best preventatives for burn-out is having clear boundaries and being able to communicate them effectively.

Together, we will practice self-supporting behaviours and learn skills to create longevity and resilience within the caring role. This engaging workshop will include reflective tools and strategies for you to take home.
