Risks

There are a substantial number of risks that can leave people who care for others vulnerable to experience compassion fatigue.  Understanding people caring for others are largely intrinsically motivated to care for others its worth amplifying.  The most prevalent risk occurs when people caring for others prioritize the needs of others before their own. 

In addition for people caring for others in organisations, there is substantial evidence that confirms the risks of compassion fatigue within organisations are exacerbated by increased workplace stressors, increasing demands and high staff turnover.
