Based on interviews with nurses, social workers, clinical psychologists, doctors, firefighters, and first responders who rescue, assist, and help to heal the injured and traumatized, this video takes us on a journey into a world the public rarely sees, depicting emotional costs experienced by professional care providers and probing the emotional consequences of professional public service. It asks the question: How are professional caregivers and first responders affected emotionally and physically? Who helps them? Viewers discover that engaged, empathic caregiving can sometimes be an occupational hazard. The program explores the painful and human sides of these professions and vulnerable responses to trauma -- Compassion Fatigue -- also known as Secondary Traumatic Stress or Vicarious Trauma. The film also addresses high levels of career satisfaction and professional meaning that caregivers experience. Ultimately, the film provides ways to cope and recover from toxic stress in the workplace.
