Do you wish there were more people helping the helpers?

If you have a heart to help others and the experience to recognize the dangers of burnout,  Forward-Facing® Professional Resilience is for you.

Learn evidence-based methods for helping professionals find their joy, vibrancy, and energy even in the most difficult situations. 

 

Forward-Facing® Professional Resilience
was designed for people dedicated to serving others without burning out.

​It’s based on the groundbreaking work of a psychologist, a traumatologist, and a social worker who recognized that compassion fatigue in care providers could be treated. Together, they created the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue (ARP), a 5-session treatment model that showed overwhelmingly positive results from its first beta testing.

 

They spent over 20 years testing, refining, and gathering peer-reviewed research about their method. They found out that the ARP can do more than treat compassion fatigue. It also catalyzes rapid growth towards professional maturation and optimization.

 

Now, for the first time, it’s available to everyone – clinicians or not – as  
Forward-Facing® Professional Resilience.

Implementing this workshop in large healthcare organizations (Barnes-Jewish Hospital; Vituity, University of Chicago Medical, etc) has led to greater patient satisfaction, better staff morale and a more efficient workforce making less errors.
