Stress, Compassion Fatigue and Burnout: An Integrative Approach to Self-Care for Helping Professionals

Self-Care is essential for enhancing optimal Healthcare, Wellbeing and for Safe Effective Use of Self (SEUS). It is part of self-regulation of the biopsychosocial-spiritual process through which we create and maintain inner and outer balance and wellbeing. Without awareness of stress physiology, stress regulation, self-care tools and self-care treatment plan, we run the risk of not recognizing the signs and symptoms and not responding effectively to prevent illness from extreme stress, compassion fatigue and worker burnout. It is important to learn to apply simple self-care tools to effectively manage stresses to balance and take care of yourself first. We are very good at helping others, but we often neglect or disregard the importance of Personal Self-Care. It is not a luxury, it is Safe Effective Use of Self (SEUS) is it a necessity for our optimal health, longevity and to effectively serve our profession and clients.
