ABOUT THE FILM : < Portraits of Professional CAREgivers: Their Passion, Their Pain > is a documentary film which takes us on a journey into a world the public has not seen. The film depicts the dramatic emotional costs experienced by professional providers such as nurses, social workers, clinical psychologists, doctors, firefighters, first responders who rescue, assist, and when possible heal the injured and traumatized. Through dramatic stories, CAREGIVERS film probes the emotionally risky aspects of professional caregiving and public service.
We ask the question: How is the professional care provider affected emotionally and physically, and who helps him or her?!
This screening is the result of an international collaboration between the ACEs connection network, the makers of the movie, and Raymond Lambert who runs the TREIreland page and is an advocate for the ACEs.
Our work is to bring help to people where possible, and to raise awareness. On Tuesday Dec 6, we'll channel our attention and energy to the Helpers themselves.
