United Kingdom: Compassion fatigue widespread among foster carers
Phys.org – November 22, 2016
‘No-one told us it was going to be like this’ is the first national study of compassion fatigue in foster carers in England and calls for greater support and understanding of the debilitating effects of caring for some of the most vulnerable children in society. The findings will be submitted to the Government’s Fostering Inquiry, led by the Education Committee, which is expected to examine all evidence in January 2017.
