Repeated and chronic exposure to large volumes of difficult stories can erode our sense of empathy for others.

We can become hardened and desensitized to the suffering of others– or conversely, we can become swallowed up by their pain. Any of us can experience these “costs of caring” when we are overloaded,  working with traumatic content, or supporting people who are chronically in crisis.

Since its launch in 2018, the Compassion Fatigue 101 online course has helped thousands of helping professionals understand and address the costs of doing difficult work.

This course was updated and revised in 2021 to reflect advancements in the field of compassion fatigue research.
