Film Screening: Portraits of Professional CAREgivers
Portraits of Professional CAREgivers: Their Passion, Their Pain is a documentary film which takes us on a journey into a world the public has not seen. The film depicts the dramatic emotional costs experienced by professional providers such as nurses, social workers, clinical psychologists, doctors, firefighters, first responders who rescue, assist, and when possible heal the injured and traumatized. Through dramatic stories, CAREGIVERS film probes the emotionally risky aspects of professional caregiving and public service.
We ask the question: How is the professional care provider affected emotionally and physically, and who helps him or her?! The audience will discover that engaged empathic caregiving can sometimes be an occupational hazard; we explore the painful and human sides of these professions and the professionals’ response to trauma known as Compassion Fatigue or Secondary Traumatic Stress. We also recognize the profound meaning caregivers may experience, sometimes referred to as compassion satisfaction and ways of coping and recovering from toxic stress in the workplace.
