Tucson Medical Center’s The Core at La Encantada and the University of Arizona are sponsoring a series of free public lectures, Conversations on Compassion.
JANUARY 25, 2017 | 5:30 PM
Compassion and the Caregiver
Mary Frances O’Connor, Department of Psychology
Caregivers include family members, doctors, 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.
Dr. O’Connor will discuss the difficulties faced by caregivers, but more importantly will discuss compassion as the overarching motivation for this difficult work. We can’t “run out” of compassion, but we can learn to improve our self-regulation skills in the face of difficult situations in order to decrease fatigue and burnout.
