Brookfield, Wis. – Funeral service is a high-touch, high-stress career that, unfortunately, comes with a high-degree of compassion fatigue and burnout. To help members of the funeral service profession understand when on-the-job stress might be impacting them and steps they can take to better cope with and preserve their emotional well-being, the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) has introduced the free Take 5 self-care series.
“Effectively managing that stress is so very important because, when we take care of ourselves, we’ll be better able to take care of the families who are depending on us,” said NFDA President Randy Anderson, CFSP, CCO. “The new Take 5 self-care series is a free resource developed by NFDA to help anyone – regardless of membership status – identify and address the stresses in your life that come with being a funeral service professional.”
