Health and welfare professionals working in stretched teams with complex case loads face pressures that are difficult to explain. Family and friends encourage us to ‘look after ourselves’ and ‘not take work home’ failing to understand that the stretched systems we work within rely on us doing exactly that. Trauma informed clinical supervision explores the emotional impact of caring work. The risks we take personally and professionally when support is inadequate and options available to protect ourselves from psychological injury and recover from burnout.
