The relevance of this article is to study such a social phenomenon as chronic fatigue syndrome in social work professionals. Any work activity in the man-man sphere has its own professional risks. The specificity of the social work specialist’s activity leads to the appearance and formation of chronic fatigue syndrome, and the lack of effective means of its prevention contributes to its significant spread and perception by social service employees as an inevitable concomitant effect of their professional activity. It is easier to prevent the occurrence and development of chronic fatigue syndrome than to deal with its consequences. The aim of the article is to study the problem of prevention of chronic fatigue syndrome in social work professionals and identify means of prevention; to identify the relationship between the specifics of social work as a professional activity, professional requirements for a social work specialist and the risks that provoke chronic fatigue syndrome. As a research method, we used a questionnaire survey as a method of collecting primary information that allows us to quickly and effectively investigate the features of the manifestation of chronic fatigue syndrome. The article considers the essence and features of the manifestation of social work professionals’ chronic fatigue syndrome. Means of prevention of chronic fatigue syndrome in social services are indicated: organization of consultations of specialists in social work with an independent psychologist, conducting psychological training; conducting preventive examinations in social sphere organizations, issuing sanatorium vouchers for treatment and rehabilitation; organization of cultural events outside the institution, visiting theaters, concerts; formation of corporate culture for team cohesion and creating a psychologically comfortable microclimate. It is shown that managers of social services underestimate the importance of the psychologist’s work with the workforce as a means of preventing chronic fatigue syndrome. In addition, one need to take into account such a moment that the social work specialists themselves do not feel very comfortable in consultations with a psychologist, an employee of the organization. They would rather have individual sessions with an independent psychologist. They would be interested in group sessions with a psychologist who does not work with them in the same organization.
