Compassion fatigue, or vicarious trauma, is a risk incurred when we engage empathetically with others who are experiencing trauma. It arises from the emotional desire to help a suffering person, and from neurological processes engaged during active empathy. It should not be confused with emotional burnout. Only recently have we learned that observers of traumatic experience can develop the same symptoms as the person directly affected.
Understanding your needs and responding appropriately is paramount to healing. Art therapy provides a safe way to express emotion and to discharge intrusive imagery. It can reduce feelings of overwhelm while bringing insight to issues of unresolved or complex trauma.
