Whether you work in a service profession, give care to dependent family members, or feel helpless scrolling through your social media feed, serving other people's hardship and suffering can overwhelm to the point that their pain becomes our own. In this energizing talk, Ann Imig, writer and founder of the national live-reading series LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER will differentiate the terms burn-out, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma, outline the signs and symptoms, and cultivate strategies for coping with feeling too much, with nothing left to give. Participants will leave with a customized plan in hand toward serving ourselves as we serve others.
