When the Well Runs Dry

A fundamental connection between personal and communal well-being exists, yet too often attention is not given to the caregiver. In this class, we will explore physiological, pastoral, and behavioral facets of compassion fatigue. For caregivers to be effective, they must be able to listen carefully what they are experiencing in their own bodies. This kind of self-awareness makes it possible for caregivers to notice when they are feeling stress, fatigue, or burnout and to take practical steps to address these challenges.


Co-sponsored with Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute. Support provided by Desert Ministries Inc., and its founding director, the late Rev. Dr. Richard M. Cromie. Learn More and Register Here

40th Pittsburgh Family Systems Conference and Symposium "Getting to Higher Ground"

We are surrounded by converging societal concerns. Increasing scapegoating of groups and individuals, environmental degradation, coarse social and political discourse, identity politics and increasingly powerful social media effects, to name just a few, pose threats toindividual, family, societal and species comfort, safety, and survival. How do we move beyond polarization to constructive action? “Getting to Higher Ground” seemed an apt theme to talk about newdirections we humans can pursue if we are able think more andemote less. Conference presentations will illustrate examples ofefforts to think broadly in the face of anxiety and fear-provoking challenges. Learn More and Regsiter Here
