Being an educator or a school healthcare employee can be mentally draining, especially in the midst of a global pandemic. Educators and healthcare professionals want to offer compassion and empathy to students, primarily to those who have experienced trauma. However, this often causes emotional fatigue as empathizers take on the trauma of their victims. Secondary trauma may take a toll in a variety of ways, making it difficult to function both professionally and personally. AFT offers FREE Trauma Counseling for all active and on-leave members of the union. For more information, log in to your member benefit portal.
