by Winston, Mary Annette, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 107; 1594188
Abstract (Summary)

The child welfare social workers’ professional responsibility is to provide services to families and children who have experienced multiple problems of maltreatment such as sexual, general, physical or emotional abuse. The constant indirect exposure to trauma clients includes an inherent danger of significant emotional, psychological and social changes in the social worker. When social workers are dealing with multiple responsibilities at one time, it is possible for symptoms of Compassion Fatigue (CF), Secondary Traumatic Stress (STS) and Burnout to go unnoticed. Therefore, this curriculum provides awareness training on CF, STS and burnout for child welfare social workers. The thesis curriculum offers an introduction to CF, STS and burnout to social workers, as they continue to provide services to clients.
