Mental healthcare is an emotionally taxing occupation that demands from professionals to emotionally relate with clients to understand their concerns. However, a continuous exposure to emotional demanding narratives can lead to compassion fatigue. The majority of the research on compassion fatigue addresses the role played by individual-level factors such as empathy, history of trauma, and attachment style, among others. The present systematic review focused on alterable work-related factors associated with compassion fatigue. The results suggested that exposure to workplace trauma, workload, and therapeutic settings were positively associated with compassion fatigue. Further, the provision of organizational resources and support and the availability of co-workers’ and supervisor’s support were negatively associated with compassion fatigue. View this paper.
