Compassion Resilience Project: Support for the animal care and use community!

When supporting animals used in research, it is common for staff to experience emotional distress, fatigue and burn-out due to compassionate caring. Compassion resilience is therefore extremely important to develop and foster by ensuring animal care and use staff feel valued and emotionally supported.

The Compassion Resilience Project is facilitated by the Compassion Resilience Committee (CRC), U of G members of the animal care & use community.

Transitioning from work-mode to personal-mode can be difficult if we have had a busy and stressful day working. It can be even more difficult for those who may be working from home and do not have a period to commute home while decompressing.
