Taking care of the caregivers—a compassionate guide to healing secondary trauma

A traumatic experience can have profound impacts on the people directly involved. However, that trauma can extend to the professionals like first responders and crisis counselors, as well as the friends and family of trauma survivors—even if it wasn’t a firsthand experience.

Healing Secondary Trauma is the gentle guide to help you identify symptoms, understand the feelings, and begin the healing process of your own secondary trauma. With interactive exercises and cutting-edge strategies for caregivers and professionals, it will help you address the daily realities of compassion fatigue, stress, and anxiety. Your journey to recovery from secondary trauma starts here.

Inside this book you’ll learn:
  • Find yourself again—Learn how to process and manage your emotional responses so you feel calmer, present, and more in control of yourself.
  • Plan for wellness—Create a path toward healing with a personalized self-care plan and strategies to regenerate empathy when your compassion stores feel low.
  • You’re not alone—Stories about everyday people highlight how secondary trauma can affect all of us in different ways.

Begin the healing process from your secondary trauma today.
