Share this page

We all know and can relate to the feeling of burnout. While the same concept exists in the field of human services, compassion fatigue is another serious possibility.

For this episode we set up a voicemail line for people involved in the day-to-day work of supporting people with disabilities to have them define compassion fatigue, and tell us how they aim to lessen it, and burnout.

Their comments are punctuated with expertise from Dr. Hassan Abdulhaqq, Chief Human Resources Officer at AABR, Inc. He helps us understand what works and what doesn’t, and how to be ‘best in class’ at mitigating burnout and compassion fatigue.
