Caring to Care

March 2022

At our March General Meeting, our guest speaker was Dr. Debbie Lassiter, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Convergence Resource Center. Her organization helps survivors of human trafficking. She is a certified Heartmath Coach and Trainer with over 40 years of experience working with the severely traumatized and is a sought-after trainer in building personal resilience and managing stress.

Dr. Lassiter's presentation was directed at self-care, focusing on the stages of Compassion Fatigue and how it affects us. She explained to be able to care for the people you love, you must first make taking care of yourself a priority in your life. Her presentation included “tools” to help one reinforce and rebuild their personal resilience.
