Just as they share a mission of caregiving, those who give the care need to look after one another. In any human service organisation staff-to-staff concern affects the quality of caring they can give…
When people in the helping professions get little or not sense of having a secure base in those they work with or for, they become more susceptible to compassion fatigue. The hug, the listening ear, the sympathetic look all matter, but they are too easily lost amid the din of frenetic activity typical in any human services setting (Goleman, 2006, p. 257).
