Do You Have Burnout? Compassion Fatigue? Secondary Trauma?

CS-CF model ©Beth Hudnell Stamm, 2009

Caregivers work hard to provide compassionate care to family members, patients, and members of the community. These caregivers are family members, nurses, emergency medical workers, doctors, social workers, and more. Caregiving comes with the risk of burnout (feelings of hopelessness) in difficult work settings and the risk of compassion fatigue (CF). The work of caregiving may cause you to witness suffering and secondary trauma (ST), from being a witness to others experienced trauma. To see if you are suffering from CF, burnout, or ST, take this free assessment from ProQOL.
