for anyone who cares for others


Compassion Fatigue, often referred to as The Cost of Caring, is the result of the depletion of emotional and physical energy over time when caring for others. It is characterized by a lessening of our ability to have empathy and compassion and thus strikes at the very core of our being.


This workshop is designed to be transformational for people who come from a wide range of caring relationships and helping professions. It is intended to empower participants with the skills, knowledge, and self-awareness necessary to either prevent or transform the effects of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.


About the Presenter


Michael has approximately 45 years’ experience in various roles within the Human Service Field. During his career he has witnessed many caring people experience compassion fatigue, including himself. Due to his growing awareness of this problem he attended and received certification as a trainer in ‘Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma’ from the Compassion Fatigue Training Institute in Kingston, Ontario.

Michael developed and taught for many years in the Human Service Work diploma program at Okanagan College in Kelowna prior to retirement. His main professional goal in retirement is to continue researching and presenting workshops on Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma. Michael is a seasoned facilitator and presenter. He combines humour, stories, and audience participation to create learning experiences that inspire and empower people to make changes toward a more rewarding, balanced, and less stressful work and home life.
