NADA is excited to launch a series of worker wellbeing resources (available to download below).
Designed for the non government AOD sector, the resources encourage workers to invest as much time and care looking after their health as they do others.
Taking care of your health is important no matter what you do for a living. But when it comes to working in the AOD sector it’s all the more important. Working in the AOD sector can be very rewarding but the passion and dedication that drives many who work in this sector can potentially lead to stress, burnout and even ‘compassion fatigue’ if not accompanied by solid self-care strategies.
While the ProQol isn’t intended as a diagnostic tool, how you score will provide a guide on how likely you are experiencing compassion fatigue, burnout and secondary traumatic stress so that you can take steps to protect and nurture your health and wellbeing.
