In addition to working with children and their families, our common, great professional love is working with experts and helpers
On one hand, working with people who are in need is extremely fulfilling and meaningful, while on the other hand it can be exhausting and risky for (mental) health of the helper. Unfortunately, in our country there is a great lack of concern for our own well-being as well as lack of systematic support and training of experts in this aspect. Employees of the social welfare and health care systems, and to a certain extent of education system, are systematically and daily in situations of intense occupational stress. High responsibility for clients, which is coupled with, very often, adverse working conditions, misunderstanding of employers and high expectations of clients and the environment contributes to phenomena such as secondary traumatization and burnout at work.
