Molly Mistretta, a Slippery Rock University assistant professor of counseling and development, recently co-authored a book about self-care for educators experiencing compassion fatigue and burnout.

Mistretta and Alison DuBois, director of the graduate school and associate professor of education at Westminster College, wrote "Overcoming Burnout and Compassion Fatigue in Schools: A Guide for Counselors, Administrators and Educators." The book provides research, anecdotal stories and workbook pages to help practitioners mitigate the stressful effects of working with students with histories of trauma.
