Brief Program Description

When we provide training, time and again people will say, “I understand what you’re saying about wounded children but what about the ‘wounded educator’?” Youth service professionals face a vastly different reality in today’s classrooms and communities. The tensions between their calling and the reality of their profession can create a growing sense of compassion fatigue, burnout, and job dissatisfaction—sometimes culminating in exiting their chosen professions altogether. Utilizing information from his latest book, the presenter will invite participants to explore a path forward in the personal and professional health and success of those working with wounded youth. Find HOPE for the wounded educator and professional!
