Welcome to your Compassion Fatigue Questionnaire
Caring for someone can be a difficult endeavour. Sometimes you may feel that you are struggling. You won't know if this a normal feeling, or if things are getting too much for you. That's called 'Compassion Fatigue'.
Technically compassion fatigue (CF) is stress resulting from exposure to a traumatized individual. CF has been described as the convergence of secondary traumatic stress (STS) and cumulative burnout (BO), a state of physical and mental exhaustion caused by a depleted ability to cope with one's everyday environment.
This questionnaire is a simple 9 questions which gives you an indication whether you are suffering from compassion fatigue. Just tick True or False for each question - don't overthink your answers!
