The purpose of this thesis was to determine whether or not there was a relationship between compassion satisfaction, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress among social workers; this was achieved by completing a quantitative study analyzing responses from respondents' demographics and The Professional Quality of Life Compassion Satisfaction and Fatigue Version 5 Scale (Stamm, 2009). The results revealed that there is a significant relationship among level of education, hours of overtime worked, and years of marriage and the levels of compassion satisfaction, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress. The findings may be beneficial in understanding the relationship between the social work profession and married life.
