Secondary Traumatic Stress: Self-Care Issues for Clinicians, Researchers, & Educators


As our knowledge of traumatic stress grows, so does our awareness of the high cost of caring. This book brings together founders and experts on the concept of secondary traumatic stress.

Beginning with the assumption that caring for people who have experienced highly stressful events puts the caregiver at risk for developing similar stress-related symptoms, this book brings together some of the best thinkers in the trauma field to write about the prevention and treatment of Secondary Traumatic Stress, and in a personal way explores our ethical obligations to each other, to our communities, and to future trauma research.
