Compassion fatigue can be a serious occupational hazard for anyone serving in a caring profession or capacity. It’s typically those who exercise the most empathy who are at highest risk. In this breakout session, seasoned chaplain and trauma expert Mark O’Sullivan will outline the relationship between secondary trauma and compassion fatigue, the typical characteristics of physical and emotional exhaustion along with a profound decrease in the ability to empathize, plus valuable tools to combat these things when caring for kids from hard places.
