Empathic Strain

Empathic strain is a term used to describe the emotional and physical exhaustion experienced by individuals who provide care and support to others, particularly in high-stress and emotionally demanding professions. While it is often associated with healthcare workers, teachers also experience empathic strain as a result of their emotional commitment to their work and the profound connections they establish with students. 


By identifying the early warning signs, adopting effective coping techniques, and nurturing a supportive atmosphere, educators can maintain the delivery of excellent education while also prioritizing their own wellness.
