Vicarious Trauma

Mental health and medical professionals are witness to pain that can at times come at a cost. ITTC acknowledges that healers can do their best work if they too, have proper support. Therapists often do much of their work in isolation; medical professionals must protect their patients from their own fear or horror. Remote services are offered to those who feel concerned about anonymity. Additionally, on-site critical incident debriefings are available to those who may require some support following bearing witness to something they found less tolerable. Our empathy and commitment to others can be the trait that renders us most vulnerable to witnessing suffering. ITTC hopes to provide a space where this is acknowledged and seeking support is viewed as a courageous endeavor.
