Building H.O.P.E Training Program: 1 CEU per module, 8 total CEUs
Building H.O.P.E. helps anyone who serves others heal from compassion fatigue and build resilience. We believe compassion fatigue is an umbrella term for all that we tire of.
Our program features eight modules which can be delivered as part of a day-long program or as stand-alone 50-minute workshops. Each module takes a closer look at what makes us weary and provides tools to help us feel better.
H.O.P.E stands for:
- Learn how compassion fatigue may appear for participants in their work and in their day.
- Identify the different types of fatigues which may make a commitment to serve challenging.
- Offer insights to help participants focus on their specific challenges.
- Provide tools and strategies to help participants heal from a fatigue and gain resilience to manage more effectively going forward.
- Minimize the feelings of burn-out that participants may experience.
Building H.O.P.E is our Coping with the Fatigues webinar series.

The Caregiving Years: 1 or 2 CEUs (one or two-hour presentations)
Through our one- or two-hour presentation program, health care professionals learn about the experience of caring for a family member. Throughout the caregiving journey, which can last from six months to more than 10 years, the role of family caregivers evolves – and so should the services and the support they receive. The Caregiving Years describes the path that family caregivers take – from Expectant Caregiver, to Freshman Caregiver, to Entrenched Caregiver, to Pragmatic Caregiver to Transitioning Caregiver to Godspeed Caregiver. Most important, the stages – and their related Stumbles and Steadies-- provide a map for health care professionals) to navigate successfully through the caregiving journey.
More than 40 million persons in the US provide care to a family member and the numbers will continue to grow.
The program objectives are:
- To educate health care professionals about the evolution of the caregiving experience, which changes over time.
- To inform health care professionals about effective referrals they can make given the family caregiver's stage.
- To provide health care professionals a frame work which describes the family caregiver experience so they can be an appropriate support during each caregiving stage.
Helping Family Caregivers Through the Compassion Fatigues: 1 CEU
“Compassion Fatigues” helps health care professionals better understand the personal caregiving experience.
Caring for a family member is an exhausting, overwhelming experience. We often equate a caregiving experience with compassion fatigue. Certainly, family caregivers get tired of feeling compassion for themselves and their carees. They also experience fatigue as it relates to coping, supporting, deciding and adjusting. During this 50-minute presentation and discussion, you’ll identify which fatigue family caregivers may be experiencing and learn how you can help them feel better.
- Learn how compassion fatigue may appear during a caregiving experience.
- Identify the different types of fatigues family caregivers may feel.
- Gain strategies to implement to help family caregivers feel better.
Note: You can use this one-work presentation as an introduction to the Building H.O.P.E. series.
Leadership Training for the Family Caregiver: 3 CEUs

Family caregivers who embrace their role as leader can feel better about their decisions, their relationships and their caregiving role.
More than 40 million persons in the US provide care to a family member and the numbers will continue to grow. How do they take on a role that demands so much without losing their selves? When family caregivers see themselves as leaders, they feel empowered to set boundaries, determine their limits and delegate effectively. We anticipate about 25 professionals annually will expect to receive CEs.
The program objectives are:
