“Chris Marchand has provided a vocabulary and conceptual framework for those of us in care giving contexts to give expression to the common professional hazards of compassion fatigue and secondary traumatic stress syndrome. Through Chris's work we were able to distinguish compassion fatigue from professional burnout, and begin the journey toward healthy practices. Every care giver would benefit from Chris's seminar.”

“Dr. Marchand’s workshop is insightful and applicable for anyone involved in a care giving role – counselors, social workers, clergy, health care professionals, teachers.  Dr. Marchand not only engages the audience, but also provides a framework for understanding the specific experience of Compassion Fatigue, which can be commonly misidentified as burnout.”
