Learning Continuum: Foundation

Compassion Fatigue refers to the profound emotional and physical exhaustion that helping professionals and caregivers can develop over the course of their career. It is a gradual erosion of all the things that keep us connected to others: our empathy, our hope,  and of course our compassion - not only for others but also for ourselves. Compassion fatigue has also been described as the “cost of caring” for others in emotional pain.
