The Role of Self-Care on Compassion Satisfaction, Burnout and Secondary Trauma Among Child Welfare Workers

The article promotes awareness of secondary trauma among child welfare workers. The risk of experiencing burnout and secondary trauma increases when exposed to multiple traumatic events when working with children and families. Engaging in positive coping strategies, such as seeking supervision, attending trainings on secondary trauma, working within a team, balancing caseloads, and work–life balance are methods to negate effects of working with traumatized individuals.
