ALN thanks the Enrichment Record and LAWTE for their help in producing this survey on compassion fatigue.*
*Compassion fatigue is a condition characterized by a gradual lessening of compassion over time. It was first diagnosed in nurses in the 1950s. Sufferers can exhibit several symptoms including hopelessness, a decrease in experiences of pleasure, constant stress and anxiety, sleeplessness or nightmares, and a pervasive negative attitude. This precursor to “burn-out” can have detrimental effects on individuals, both professionally and personally, including a decrease in productivity, the inability to focus, and the development of new feelings of incompetency and self-doubt.
