Working with traumatized people can erode workers’ compassion and empathy as the shared experience of trauma becomes overwhelming. Resiliency refers to the ability to withstand the stresses and strains of life and work and have a strong capacity for adaptation. Resilient people tend to display certain personality traits, but in addition have robust daily practices that keep them mentally and physically strong.
