NASW-VT 2010 Annual Conference
Friday, October 29, 2010
Featuring Keynote and workshop with Paul Fulton, Ed.D.
Mental Health, Tufts Health Plan and Founding
Member, Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy
“Teach us to care and not to care. Teach us to sit still.”
Mindfulness, compassion, and compassion fatigue
We are continually called upon to witness seemingly endless human suffering, and our efforts on behalf of our clients or ourselves can seem hopelessly inadequate. How are we to remain helpful to others when we are faced with our own uncertainties and the simple exhaustion of compassion? Dr. Fulton will speak to the contribution mindfulness may make to the heart of the caregiver through a reconceptualization of the nature of suffering, the cultivation of compassion for ourselves and others, and a changed relationship to difficult experience itself.
We are looking for volunteers for several small tasks during the day. If you could like more information or to sign up to help, click here for email or call: 888-260-7398
