#EndPetProAbuse: Be Kind & Respectful.
Today, Pet Professional Abuse is one of the key contributing factors for compassion fatigue.
Compassion fatigue is a term that describes the physical, emotional, and psychological impact of helping others — often through experiences of stress or trauma.
Compassion fatigue occurs when these triggers and experiences start to affect your thoughts, moods, and well-being outside of work. Being affected by your work is a normal part of caregiving professions, but when the feeling becomes overwhelming, you may be experiencing compassion fatigue.
While the symptoms can be frightening and sometimes debilitating, there are steps you can take to heal. Recognizing the signs, taking proactive preventive measures, and seeking treatment can help.
It is common for caregivers and many professionals to feel overwhelmed by their work. If you’re starting to feel that your compassion fatigue symptoms are affecting your life, reach out to your doctor. They may refer you to a psychologist or psychiatrist specializing in trauma. Your doctor may also be able to treat any physical symptoms you are experiencing.
