Burnout, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue are all considered occupational hazards. These effects can result directly from working in certain professions, such as refugee service provision.

This guide provides recommendations for supervisors and leaders to promote resilience within their organizations and reduce occupational hazards among their team members, along with a case study and additional resources.
