Description

Description:
Compassion fatigue has been documented as an occupational hazard in counseling. Providing education to interns on compassion fatigue and protective factors, such as self-care, can normalize struggles experienced by interns. Supervision provides a relationship to build skills to help prevent compassion fatigue. Interns should understand counselor developmental phases and the necessity of self-care plans. To instill this knowledge, supervisors should focus on the purpose of supervision, activities of supervision, counselor developmental phases, and compassion fatigue education.



Objectives:

  1. Examine compassion fatigue and how counseling supervisors can educate interns on protective factors
  2. Explore strategies counseling supervisors can use to address compassion fatigue in supervision
