Compassion Fatigue: The Cost of Caring

Friday, Feb 2, 2024 12 pm to 1 pm

Virtual

Training Sessions

Abstract

Charles Figley defined compassion fatigue as “the cost of caring,” but what does that mean, who is most prone to it, and what do we do about it? Compassion fatigue increases the likelihood that someone will consider leaving their job, reduces professional effectiveness by limiting empathic engagement, and tends to coincide with other stress responses, including vicarious trauma, burnout, mental illness, and substance use. Compassion fatigue and comorbid responses to professional stress also tend to diminish team cohesion and effectiveness and increase the likelihood that more team members will leave their jobs, especially on highly interdependent teams. Rachel uses an affirming and dignifying approach to normalize the occurrence of compassion fatigue without minimizing its impact on professionals and, in turn, our clients.

Objectives

  • Define and describe the stages of compassion fatigue and the associated symptoms
  • Share practical suggestions for the relief and prevention of compassion fatigue
  • Validate attendees’ experiences and affirm hope for recovery from compassion fatigue
