“Françoise Mathieu’s writing is wonderful: she speaks from the heart, practitioner to practitioner, about the stressors and strains of human service work, particularly those that come from prolonged regular work with traumatized patients and clients. This is a book you help write by yourself and about yourself. That’s why it is the workbook for trauma work.”

Charles R. Figley, Tulane University, Louisiana, USA, and author of Treating Compassion Fatigue




A gratitude post


This will be a brief post as I am packing things up to head up North for the holidays. Just wanted to share a few update and send some thanks out before going off to the big turkey/Cashew nut roast fest. I will be off on vacation until January 4, though if we finally get snow, I will extend my leave to January 9th.

There are many exciting things happening at Compassion Fatigue Solutions in the New Year: Our book launch in Kingston and Toronto, a Webinar series, and an amazing Conference in June. I will be heading to the East coast several times in the coming months (Halifax and St John’s, looking forward to meeting you!). I will also be presenting in Montreal and Toronto for the Hincks Dellcrest and offering Walking the Walk and the Compassion Fatigue Train the trainer  right here at home in Kingston in March. If you haven’t had a chance to experience our one day Walking the Walk workshop, please come and give yourself the gift of a day for you.

A Word of Thanks

If you have met me in person before, you will likely know that I am deeply passionate about my work. I have had the most amazing past ten years working in the field of compassion fatigue education and have met some wonderful people along the way.
