On May 13th, 2020, we were scheduled to offer our annual Compassion Fatigue Conference. An event that always provided a way for Gluckstein Lawyers to give back to the community through relevant and engaging presenters, networking opportunities and practical takeaways.
Unfortunately, this year we were unable to hold our event, needing to cancel it as part of Covid-19 social distancing requirements. We, along with our planned attendees, were all so disappointed, especially feeling like if there was ever a year where we needed come Compassion Fatigue resources and supports, this was the year.

As a way of trying to give back somehow instead of our live conference, we decided to host a virtual CF webinar with Dr. Parmjit Singh, to present to our registrants about how to manage extreme stress during a crisis.
We are happy to share that the webinar has now been uploaded to our Gluckstein Lawyers YouTube channel.

We plan to offer more webinars soon from a variety of speakers and we hope to continue providing support and resources related to Compassion Fatigue in one form or another. Stay tuned for more information!
