This study was completed as a systematic review looking into effective self-care for those working with trauma and at risk populations. This study looked into how compassion fatigue can be combated by compassion satisfaction. By workers actively and effectively practicing self-care they are able to increase their own compassion satisfaction, which allows them to fight off both compassion fatigue and burnout. This study was able to identify exercise, spirituality, mindfulness, and personal support all as popular and effective self-care strategies commonly used by mental workers.
