What is Compassion Fatigue?

"Compassion Fatigue is a state experienced by those helping people or animals in distress; it is an extreme state of tension and preoccupation with the suffering of those being helped to the degree that it can create a secondary traumatic stress for the helper."

    Caring too much can hurt. When caregivers focus on others without practicing self-care, destructive behaviors can surface.

    Apathy, isolation, bottled up emotions and substance abuse head a long list of symptoms associated with the secondary traumatic stress disorder now labeled: Compassion Fatigue

    What is compassion fatigue costing you?

    Compassion Fatigue often hits critical mass in the workplace. When this happens, the organization itself suffers.

  • Chronic absenteeism

  • Spiraling Worker's Comp costs

  • High turnover rates

  • Friction between employees

  • Friction between staff and management

  • These are among the organizational symptoms that surface. This creates additional stress on workers.

    Healing an organization takes time, patience, and most important, commitment.
