Support for CYC practitioners?

2016

Hello,
 
I am wondering if anyone is aware of any narrative studies having been completed with CYC practitioner family support systems?  In particular I am looking for partners’ impressions on how individuals in CYC change due to the challenges of the job – PTSD, vicarious trauma, burnout and/or compassion fatigue.  Are there resources/workshops available to partners of CYCPs who are struggling and need support in their home, outside of traditional counseling?
 
Thank you and be well.
