Individuals working in high-stress, customer-facing positions face demanding interactions as a regular part of their job requirements. Having to work with people in stressful situations, deliver difficult news, and offer appropriate emotional and logistical support to constituents/clients on an ongoing basis can take a very real toll on the providers. When the demands of the job outweigh the emotional reserves we have available to us, we can suffer from “consideration/compassion fatigue” and related stress which can lead to negative consequences within both a professional and personal context.
