In her impassioned new book, Compassion Fatigue, Moeller warns that the American media threatens our ability to understand the world around us. Why do the media cover the world in the way that they do? Are they simply following the marketplace demand for tabloid-style international news? Or are they creating an audience that has seen too much--or too little--to care? Through a series of case studies of the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse"--disease, famine, death and war--Moeller investigates how newspapers, newsmagazines and television have covered international crises over the last two decades, identifying the ruts into which the media have fallen and revealing why.

Approximately 30% to 61% of first year nurses have intentions of leaving the nursing profession. With the projected need for nurses to increase by 22% by the year 2018, it is predicted there will be a nursing shortage three times larger than any nursing shortage in the past 60 years. Why are first year nurses leaving the nursing profession? The purpose of this research study was to examine whether compassion fatigue is prevalent in nurses within their first year of nursing. After performing a review of the literature previous researchers have established that compassion fatigue does exist among nurses, but to this researcher's knowledge no study has been conducted on first year nurses. The Professional Quality of Life (ProQOL) scale, along with a researcher designed nurse demographic questionnaire, was used to survey 26 first year nurses. The ProQOL scale tested the subjects' likeliness for compassion satisfaction as well as their risks for burnout and secondary traumatic stress. Results indicated there was evidence of compassion fatigue developing within the first year of new nurses' employment. A Pearson correlation test was conducted showing there was a negative correlation between compassion satisfaction and burnout, and a positive correlation between secondary traumatic stress and burnout. Mann Whitney U and Kruskal-Wallis statistic tests were also conducted and showed there was no significant difference between age, gender, education level, shift worked, and hospital unit among the subjects in the study. Understanding the onset of compassion fatigue in our newest nurses may prompt hospital administrators, nursing leaders and those employed within staff development to implement self-care programs for nursing staff, educational sessions to help nurses recognize signs and symptoms and to implement strategies to combat compassion fatigue. This insight may help reduce turnover and increase retention among our newest members of the nursing profession.

This book is designed to help religious leaders, professional counselors, concerned family members, and individuals offer viable, appropriate levels of care to someone with an addiction problem, one who refuses to accept assisted-living conditions or comply with medical advice. Using tools in this book can increase awareness of the issue and acceptance of recovery. Learn how to avoid compassion fatigue while using healthy personal boundaries. Because these tools are likely used in an emotional setting, the least emotionally involved helper or leader is the best person for attempting an organized intervention. Concerned others may be able to find serenity after going through this process. This book teaches a mini-intervention or one-on-one short meeting as a setup for a full-blown maxi-intervention later, if necessary. If the maxi-intervention is not successful at first, next steps and consequences are taught. These steps are in keeping with Jesus’ instructions on how to approach someone with an issue. This book compiles thirty-nine years of studying and experience of achieving compliance with the best of care for someone refusing help with a serious issue. In using these steps and illustrations, 90 percent of the full maxi-interventions result in beginning the first stages of treatment or recovery.
