Professional Quality of Life

Throughout a year of AmeriCorps service, or any challenging work where you are in contact with people during a time of need, those who serve may be in danger of compassion fatique, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress.  This FREE measure, which you can self score, can be used as a tool for training and self reflection to maintain a high professional quality of life:

For use with Northeast Ohio Literacy Corps, I have adapted this tool to refer to “service” instead of “work” and “AmeriCorps member” instead of “helper.”
