Compassion Fatigue: Burnout, Secondary Traumatic Stress
First Responders and PTSD

Being in the helping profession, you are called upon to respond to individuals and families in crisis on a daily basis. You understand the immediate and long term impact that exposure to trauma has on your clients yet

most do not understand, or ignore, the personal and professional impact this exposure has on your overall wellbeing.
