Snoqualmie, WA, August 31, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Compassion Fatigue results from stress experience while working with traumatized and suffering people and is the topic for a September 1st Lunch & Learn hosted by the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital District.
When caring begins to hurt, the first step towards healing is recognizing Compassion Fatigue symptoms. These include irritability, sleeplessness, emotional withdrawal, anxiety, and feelings of helplessness or inadequacy. Candidates for Compassion Fatigue include healthcare or emergency care workers, addiction specialists, family members caring for loved one or any one else who focuses on others without first taking care of themselves.
They hope you can join them on Thursday September 1st from 12:00 Noon to 1pm at the Snoqualmie Fire Department, 37600 SE Snoqualmie Parkway, Snoqualmie, WA. Lunch complements of the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital Foundation.
Please RSVP Philip Koziol firstname.lastname@example.org or 425.831.2326 -- no later than Wednesday, August 31st.
