Abstract: Research demonstrates a fundamental connection between personal and communal well-being. Yet, too often, care of the caregiver is not given the attention it needs. This symposium will explore compassion fatigue from physiological, pastoral, and behavioral perspectives.

Co-sponsored by Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute

Friday, March 27 at 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Room 2020
