A landmark volume in the field of traumatic stress… Essential reading for anyone involved in a caregiving role.
-Frank W. Weathers, Ph.D., National Center for PTSD, Boston VAMC

As our knowledge of traumatic stress grows, so too does our awareness of the high cost of caring. 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. This “cutting edge” material not only reflects the current state of knowledge about secondary traumatization, but in a personal way explores our ethical obligations to each other, to our communities, and to future trauma research.

“A must for the practicing clinician.”
-Martin Seligman, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania

“Both practical and deeply personal… a necessary companion for all those who do the work.”
-Tom Williams, Psy.D., President, International Association of Trauma Counselors
