Season 2 Episode 34: "Compassion Fatigue"
Compassion fatigue is a term used to describe the physical, emotional, mental, and psychological effect that comes from helping others, especially those who are traumatized or suffering from any significant emotional damage. It often comes from accumulated stress or trauma resulting from being overwhelmed by the feelings, pain, and traumatic experiences of others. Lending a helping hand to a person who needs it means being empathetic and giving a piece of ourselves to be the next person for them to feel better. Sadly, if not careful, this could have its side effects. This episode provides strategies on how compassion fatigue can be prevented.
