Ok, so I was trying to edit my previous response and for whatever reason couldn’t figure out how to do so… I just wanted to point out that I think the way I worded my previous response with regards to secondary trauma, it seems like I minimized it, but that was not my intention… Even though I put a little disclaimer in there that I recognized it’s detrimental effects, I still feel like it came off as “not being a big deal.”  It is.  I think what I was trying to say is that I have studied much more on the topic of burnout, so I felt more comfortable talking about IT’s detrimental effects.  Trauma of any kind can obviously be terribly debilitating, and so it’s important that we recognize the difference between it and professional burnout.
