This study will examine school administrators and their experiences with compassion fatigue. Prinz (2011) describes empathy as “a vicarious emotion one experiences when reflecting on the emotion of another” (p. 1). Compassion fatigue has been defined as “the cost of caring” (Hamilton, 2008, p. 10) and used to describe the emotional reaction of a helper to another person’s trauma. This study examines the negative effects that are a result of empathy and compassion may have on school leaders.
