The purpose of this project is to acquire and apply the knowledge found in understanding compassion fatigue in chaplains who are serving in the United States Army Reserves and hold a full-time civilian clergy position, into a workshop to provide a resource to assist chaplains to effectively cope with compassion fatigue. The research consisted of a combined qualitative and quantitative approach through completing a verbatim and a questionnaire on all ten participants. The results found those who experienced high amounts of compassion fatigue had poor self-care, aspects of burnout, and no one to process their feelings with after difficult counseling sessions.
