How are you?: Understanding the Sorrows and Joys of Caring for Animals

New dates to be determined, more news soon.

Limited to 80 participants.

Organised in collaboration with and hosted by WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre

How are you? Providing care for wild animals in zoos and aquariums brings many joys and positive experiences, but can also leave you emotionally drained or numb by negative experiences. Animal caregivers, curators, veterinarians, researchers, and other animal welfare staff, often have high levels of compassion, empathy, and drive to care for others and affect change. This workshop provides you with a theoretical and practical overview of strategies related to compassion awareness, including preventing and addressing compassion fatigue, and enhancing compassion satisfaction and resilience. We will be drawing on experiences and research literature, and include a wide variety of practical activities and tools for you, including resources for you to take home.

Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, UK
