Compassion Fatigue is a term used to describe the psychological, emotional, and physical costs of working in one of the helping professions, such as healthcare, education, mental health, disaster relief, law enforcement, hospice care, and social and environmental justice.
The individuals involved in these and other similar professions pay a high emotional price because trauma can be contagious – especially for the highly empathetic, who are likely to choose professions where they will be always reaching out a hand to help others.
The impact of absorbing secondary trauma can affect both the professional and personal life and alter world view. The good news is there are healthy ways to combat this onslaught and to build positive defenses against secondary trauma.
