June is PTSD Awareness Month

Compassion fatigue (coined by Dr. Figley) is a form of secondary traumatic stress, and a topic I studied extensively for my dissertation. Healthcare workers, therapists, clergy, parents and caretakers may experience this while providing support to others in distress on a consistent basis. As you enter the weekend, enjoy your time to de-stress and refuel yourself - biopsychsocially & spiritually. There's hope - compassion satisfaction helps to mitigate the symptoms of compassion fatigue, which means you can conceptualize and believe the benefits/reward you receive from the work/support you provide to others. Compassion fatigue is also treatable.
