Client Interactions
Virtually via Zoom

May 12, 2021

Sessions Include:

Unburdened: Change how you react to “those” clients. An interactive workshop on dealing with difficult situations.

  • Client Caregiver Burden: What is It? What Can We Do About It?
  • More than Compassion Fatigue: How Client Burden Transfers to YOU
  • ACTion Plan to Reduce Burden Transfer in Your Life

Completing this interactive workshop with clinical psychologist, Dr. Mary Beth Spitznagel, will help you understand how client caregiver burden affects the pet owners you work with and the decisions they make. Taking the Burden Transfer Inventory will give you insight into how your clients’ burden transfers to you and your team. Once you learn what burden transfer looks like in your own life, techniques will be taught to help you take action to reduce stress and burnout through: 1) recognizing and reducing client caregiver burden and 2) changing your own reactions during client interactions to minimize burden transfer.
