Lecture - 'Compassion and the Caregiver'

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 - 5:30pm

Caregivers include family members, doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers and chaplains. Fatigue and burnout can hit anyone in a caregiver role who takes on this very important task in the lives of loved ones and patients. Join us for a discussion of the difficulties faced by caregivers, but more importantly, the cultivation of compassion as the overarching motivation for this difficult work. 

Mary-Frances O'Connor, Ph.D, Department of Psychology will explore how we can't 'run out' of compassion, but we can improve our self-regulation skills in the face of difficult situations in order to decrease fatigue and burnout.

This talk is part of the "Conversations on Compassion" lecture series presented by the Center for Compassion Studies and sponsored by Tucson Medical Center's The Core.
