Second Hand Shock:

“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. Every time you interact with those you help, you are putting yourself at risk for it; particularly if you experienced childhood trauma.

The authors explore the subtle and covert way that absorbing others’ trauma while controlling empathy gradually alters the structure of the brain, negatively affects eh mind and can ultimately desensitize, numb and cause these disturbances. This book offers acknowledgment and hope to the millions of “helping professionals through a method of recovery call The Rapid Advance Process 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 as you work through the AFTERSHOCK Workbook included the second half of the book.
