Description

Most healthcare and human services workers dealing with the effects of this black hole called Compassion Fatigue usually resort to doing what they’ve always done: Work harder and give more until they are completely tapped out.

Compassion Fatigue is not just a “fluffy” term for burnout. It depletes not just your mind and your body, but the very core of who you are as a human being—the seat of your emotions, your soul. Oftentimes taking the form of disdain for the frailty of humanity, this psychological foe can lead a person, who at one time entered the field of healthcare out of compassion, to walk away cynical, jaded, and convinced that all human beings are hell-bent on destroying themselves. Doe-eyed nursing students become jaded chain smokers who spend their breaks railing against their latest lousy patient and the broken healthcare system with other cynical coworkers.

Whether you’re caring for a friend or family member with a terminal illness or you’re a trained medical professional, compassion fatigue is one of the deadliest adversaries any healthcare personnel can face.

The key to overcoming and preventing Compassion Fatigue is taking personal responsibility for yourself and recognizing your own limitations as a caregiver. You need to take care of yourself first before you can effectively take care of someone else.
