Cover of Social Work Talk magazineDr Jonathon Louth from The Australian Alliance for Social Enterprise at the University of South Australia has been featured in the May 2020 edition of Social Work Talk, titled Mental Health in Social Work.

The article explores his research collaboration with Centacare Catholic Family Services which investigated the vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and burnout experienced by frontline care workers.

It summarises the key findings of their 18-month study, which identified several interconnected protective and predictive factors that organisations should take into account when managing workers in traumatic environments.
