Dealing with Work-Induced Stress & Building Resiliency

Each organization is a living organism, made up of individuals, whose health and happiness in the workplace directly contributes to the productivity and profitability of the entire organization.

Extensive research has shown that exposure to excessive pressure and challenge in the workplace can be motivating. However, when pressure reaches a level where the individual feels they can no longer cope, it can lead to stress.

Individuals working in the behavioral health field are particularly at risk to experiencing work- induced stress due to the nature of the work and being exposed to individuals who are suffering, on a daily basis. In addition to this, helping professionals are also at risk for experiencing *Vicarious Trauma and *Compassion Fatigue.

Resiliency is a protective factor against stress, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.

* “Vicarious trauma is the process of change that happens because you care about other people who have been hurt, and feel committed or responsible to help them. Over time this process can lead to changes in your psychological, physical and spiritual well being.” (2009, Headington Institute)

* Compassion fatigue is secondary trauma experienced by health care providers due to their helping role and interactions with those who are traumatized.
