Helping professionals can suffer from burn-out and compassion fatigue from the nature of their work, but that may be only the tip of the iceberg. What about those in the silent grip of unexplained and debilitating problems like depression, obesity, immune disorders, addiction, or anxiety? It could be vicarious trauma, a phenomenon beyond compassion fatigue. Every time you interact with those you help, you are putting yourself at risk for it; particularly if you experienced childhood trauma.In this second edition ofSecond-Hand Shock, including theAftershock Workbookthe experts explore the subtle and covert ways that absorbing others' trauma while controlling empathy gradually alters the structure of the brain, negatively affecting the mind and ultimately desensitizing, numbing and causing these disturbances.Offering acknowledgment and hope to the millions of helping professionals,Second-Hand Shock and theAftershock Workbook, guide you through the Rapid Advance Process, a method of recovery created and used by the authors with their own clients. Once you recognize the warning signs and symptoms of vicarious trauma, you will find relief and recovery as you work through your own vicarious trauma through theAftershock Workbook.
