Caring Hearts Conference & Retreat
“Providing Trauma, Bereavement and Missing Persons education and support for frontline professionals and caregivers.”
The team at Regina Palliative Care & Bereavement Centre are excited to announce the launch of our 1st Annual Caring Hearts Conference & Retreat on November 2-5, 2017!
We understand the ripple effects that trauma can have on the caretakers of survivors & the frontline professionals — those who become immediately engaged with the event(s) and provide sustained care for the survivors’ physical and emotional needs over time. Many suffer from compassion fatigue or the effects of secondary trauma ... It's no surprise that many frontline workers develop symptoms similar to those who suffered a trauma firsthand.
Who Do We Mean When We Say Frontline Professionals?
- Social Workers
- Counsellors/Psychologists/Guidance Counsellors
- Nurses & Care Aides
- Corrections Officers
- Funeral Services
- Charitable or Non-Profit Organizations & Volunteers
- First Nations Organizations & Agencies
- Victim Services Coordinators & Volunteers
- Missing Persons Liasons
This conference will provide a variety of quality and meaningful sessions on trauma, missing persons and bereavement as it relates to frontline professionals and those who provide caregiving, to assist with developing effective ways of working with trauma. We encourage attendees to utilize what they have learned in their place of business or personal lives when they return.
- Trauma & Trauma - Informed Care
