SelfCare Resource Hub

What is Professional Trauma and Fatigue?

We recommend that you start here. Understanding what Professional Trauma and Fatigue is is the first step to tackling it. In brief, it is a term we coined to practically describe all the ways that working with people can affect your health and wellbeing. They include:

Stress

Compassion Fatigue

Vicarious/Secondary Trauma

Burnout

For a more detailed overview read our co-founder Sass's introductory blog post here.

The SelfCare Resource Hub is where you can find all of the books, articles, podcasts, tools and videos that we recommend. Some are authored and sold by us, some are provided free by us, and some are by other experts. We want to make knowledge about how to protect yourself as a practitioner as accessible as possible. We encourage you to share with us any additional resources you would recommend so that we can share them here. 

 

We have divided the resources into sections for your convenience. The sections flow logically in the order we recommend, but if you are interested in something specific click the section titles to skip to what you're looking for easily.
