Working with individuals who have experienced severe trauma can be traumatizing for caregivers. Recognizing the toll that such work can take can help caregivers to sustain their well-being and capacity to work. There is also evidence that such work can actually have positive effects, as caregivers develop greater capacities for resilience. Particularly important is a supportive work environment in which caregivers can share their experiences and receive support and recognition for the important work they are undertaking. This article advocates for a model of caring for the caregivers, giving as illustration a consultation with a group in Sydney, Australia, that was providing an art therapy intervention for Aboriginal preschool children living in stressful conditions.
