In previous modules, you have explored emotional intelligence. For Project Three, you will be exploring careers and job opportunities that leverage the EI and social awareness skills that you are building in this class. In this module, you will read about how compassion fatigue manifests in helping careers and why self-care is so important. Keep this idea of compassion fatigue in mind as you encounter the topics of coping behaviors and grit in later modules of your course.
