Minimizing Burnout in Death Care Professionals

Webinar preview image with the title, event time of May 24 at 6:00 pm ET and 4 headshot images of the moderator and panelists.

Caretaking professions are facing unprecedented levels of burnout as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic—and burnout can impede our ability to offer kindness and compassion to others. Those working in the funeral industry are facing unprecedented challenges yet carry an enormous responsibility: for many, funeral directors are their first entry into grief and loss and the experience with making arrangements can set the tone for a person’s grief journey. In this webinar, experts will identify warning signs of compassion fatigue, and offer strategies for balancing empathy with self-care.
