Portraits of Professional CAREgivers: Their Passion, Their Pain is a documentary film which takes us on a journey that depicts the dramatic emotional costs experienced by professional providers such as social workers, nurses, clinical psychologists, doctors, firefighters, first responders who rescue, assist, and when possible heal the injured and traumatized. Through dramatic stories, the CAREGIVERS film probes the emotionally risky aspects of professional caregiving and public service.


The audience will discover that engaged empathic caregiving can sometimes be an occupational hazard, as we explore the painful and human sides of professional’s response to trauma known as Compassion Fatigue or Secondary Traumatic Stress.

The full feature documentary shares the dramatic behind the scenes stories of professionals who provide care to traumatized or dying patients and clients--medics, firefighters, child protective social workers, hospice staff, clinical psychologists, urban school teachers, emergency nurses, doctors and others. We learn about the emotional impact of their arduous work upon themselves and how they seek to cope with secondary trauma, as well as to find meaning in these very challenging jobs. Along with the powerful stories of the professionals, internationally recognized experts provide insightful commentary.


Through dramatic personal stories, Portraits of Professional CAREgivers probes the emotionally risky aspects of professional care providers. We ask the question: How is the care provider affected emotionally and physically, and who helps our helpers?


NASW Georgia Chapter members Peggy Horansky, LCSW, Kenneth Jasnau, LMSW, ACSW and K. Holley Cowan, LCSW will facilitate the film and discussion from a social work practice perspective.
