Closing Keynote: Deciphering the Intersection of Caring for Self & Caring for Others (105)

3:15 – 4:30 pm Saturday, August 19

Though the caring professions reap an abundance of benefits in the realms of compassion satisfaction and relationship building, they are also at risk for a multiplicity of professional pitfalls, such as moral distress, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout.

Oftentimes, the professional horizon where self-intersects with others can be blurred or obscured, thus influencing the relationships between self and others. We will honor the art of caregiving while reflecting on intentional self-care that could influence our professional horizon.
