Event description

Description

FREE & part of the Covington Curriculum Conference 2019, this is a special event viewing the day before the conference of the documentary film "Portraits of Professional CAREgivers" open to the public and conference attendees.


"Portraits of Professional CAREgivers: Their Passion, Their Pain"

Watch the Trailer

"A documentary film based on interviews with nurses, social workers, clinical psychologists, doctors, firefighters, and first responders who rescue, assist, and help to heal the injured and traumatized—and also tell their own remarkable and often painful stories. The film takes us on a journey into a world the public rarely sees, depicting emotional costs experienced by professional care providers and probing the emotional consequences of professional public service.

The film asks the question: How are professional caregivers and first responders affected emotionally and physically? Who helps them? Viewers discover that engaged, empathic caregiving can sometimes be an occupational hazard; we explore the painful and human sides of these professions and vulnerable responses to trauma -- Compassion Fatigue -- also known as Secondary Traumatic Stress or Vicarious Trauma. The film also addresses high levels of career satisfaction and professional meaning that caregivers experience. Ultimately, the film provides ways to cope and recover from toxic stress in the workplace."
