Caregiver Fatigue

Preparing for trauma exposure


Caregiver fatigue is a general term that describes the chronic and cumulative effect of different stresses at work and how it negatively impacts the worker’s health and wellbeing. This is especially important in helping professions because the erosion of compassion and empathy affects a worker’s effectiveness in helping the people we support. This class explores this field, the nature of compassion satisfaction, and offers strategies for cultivating resilience and compassion satisfaction that are both self and team-care oriented. 

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize warning signs of caregiver fatigue

  • Addressing the “why” of caregiver work
