After we talked a little about this subject last week, I got a note from Katherine Dobbs who teaches a course on compassion fatigue through VSPN on compassion fatigue and shelter and rescue work. It’s a real time, online session on October 2, 2013 from 8 AM to 10 AM, eastern time. The cost is $36 for early enrollment and $40 regular price.
I asked her if she had other times scheduled for those who can’t make this particular seminar. At this time VSPN does not. She has her own website that offers a compassion fatigue webinar (geared more towards veterinary personnel than shelter workers) if anyone is interested.
Do let me know if anyone attends. I’d love to know if you all found it helpful and if it’s something I should continue to recommend

I can only imagine how draining it can be to work with animals in crisis….beautiful, rewarding, special…but so very hard.
My heart goes out to anyone who works exclusively with animals in a hospice type environment, they are angels walking here on this earth.
I am sure that course will be very insightful.
