Professional Quality of Life Measure

Customize a Presentation on Compassion Satisfaction, Compassion Fatigue & Secondary Traumatic Stress
Need to Make a Presentation? Don't Fret! The ProQOL Stock Slide Set Can Help.

Many people contact us about trainings and presentations that they are making. Because we understand how important it is to share this work, and how hard it can be to put presentations together, we provide here a set of stock slides.

In the slides you will find commentary to assist you in preparing your presentation. You can add your name and organizational information. You can create any format that you like.

If you are not using the ProQOL measure, don't worry! You can use the slides, or a selection from them, to make your presentation. We are delighted when you use them. The slides belong to but we want to share them with you.

In addition to slides on compassion satisfaction and burnout there are recent additions to help clarify the relationship between compassion fatigue, secondary traumatic stress and vicarious traumatization. These additions resulted from a collaboration between Pearlman and Stamm.

What does it mean that the ProQOL cannot be sold?
  1. In some cases your presentation will be a commercial product where participants pay a fee to take the course. You may use the materials freely as long as the materials are not sold separately from the overall course that is being sold. Another guidance as to whether the ProQOL is being sold is whether or not the ProQOL is used in advertising for the program in such a way that it appears the course is the vehicle of access to the ProQOL.
  2. If you are not sure about your project, please feel free to contact me through the contact page at the I am delighted to work with you.  I keep the ProQOL in the public domain because I want it to be used freely.
  3. Please review the information at, especially the FAQs.
If you have any questions about use, please contact us through the contact form at this site.
