Compassion fatigue, as defined by Dr. Charles Figley in 1996, is defined as a state of tension and preoccupation with the individual or cumulative trauma of clients, as manifested in one or more ways:
- Re-Experiencing the Traumatic Event
- Persistent Arousal
- Avoidance/Numbing to Reminders of the Traumatic Event
Professionals who work to relieve others’ suffering are, by virtue of the nature of the relationship, also affected. When this phenomenon becomes overwhelming, it is identified as compassion fatigue.
