Libraries and Compassion Fatigue (Massachusetts Library System)

"You work in a library? That must be so peaceful!" If you've had this response when telling someone where you work, and haven't known exactly how to respond because, well let's face it, working in a library isn't always peaceful, then this webinar is for you. We'll discuss the effects our work has on us, and what to do about it. Elissa Hardy, the Community Resource Specialist at Denver Public Library, is one of only a handful of on-site library social workers. She is an expert on the effects of trauma and stress on individuals, and has trained librarians around the country to help them better support their communities and themselves. This webinar will be recorded. For more information and to register, visit: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/485081821746677249
