In honor of the dispatchers facing the hurricane trauma and flooding in Houston and Florida, and those in Washington and California and other states afflicted by the devastating wildfires – and all of us who understand from the sidelines what our hard working brave first first responders are going through, Professional Pride offers a free download of veteran 9-1-1 trainer Sue Pivetta’s book, 9-1-1 and Compassion Fatigue.

Excerpt from the book:

The Cost Of Caring - Compassion Fatigue — the words just sound right don’t they? Maybe not for you, but for someone you work with. You may be thinking there are more important things to worry about, care for — right? Compassion Fatigue can be the pre-cursor to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and we know that the effects of PTSD are serious physical and psychological disorders that can ruin a career, even lead to suicide or homicide as witnessed by returning war veterans. So what is it and what can we do about compassion fatigue? What is it?  CF was first recognized in the nursing profession.  Professionals who listen to the stories of fear, pain and suffering of others may feel similar fear, pain and suffering because they care. Professionals especially vulnerable to Compassion Fatigue (CF) include public safety, emergency workers, counselors, mental health professionals, medical professionals, clergy, advocate volunteers, and human service workers. If you ever feel as though you are losing your sense of self to those you serve — you may be suffering from CF. This book offers a personal survey and helpful advice on avoiding CF.
