Resources for professionals – Compassion fatigue
Caring is a fulfilling passion but it can come with a price especially when we forget to care for ourselves.
These videos are aimed at direct service keyworkers and clinical staff, and are about compassion fatigue.
In the first video, Sarah Price, from the Hospice’s Family Support team, defines compassion fatigue and talks about how to recognise the symptoms and costs, and how to avoid it.
In the second video, she talks about recognising and defining symptoms of compassion fatigue and how we can practise self-care.
