IDEA Symposium Event Flyer

UGA’s Franklin College of Arts & Sciences at the UGA Griffin Campus is proud to announce that it will hold its second IDEA Symposium on Friday, April 19th, 8:00 AM – 12:30 PM.  This year’s timely topic is “Compassion Fatigue:  Running on Empty.”  In the course of our lifetimes, almost all of us will take on the role of care giver in some capacity.  The role of care giver brings rewards and satisfaction, but also often comes at a cost and takes a heavy toll, not only on the individual care givers, but also on their families and communities.  It is because of the significant impact that care giving has on so many in so many diverse professions and roles that compassion fatigue was chosen as the focus of this year’s IDEA Symposium, a professional learning conference held on the UGA Griffin Campus.

The Symposium will feature presentations on topics such as compassion fatigue’s societal impact, burnout and toxic environments, vicarious trauma, and the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of compassion fatigue.

The Symposium, which will be held in the Student Learning Center on the UGA Griffin Campus, is free and open to the public, but registration is REQUIRED as space is limited.  The button below will take you to a page where you can register for the Symposium.
