Another important note, especially in the age of COVID-19, is that medical professionals, first responders and clinical mental health providers are all at an increased risk of experiencing the vicarious trauma response. The fear, uncertainty and emotional depletion of caring for traumatized individuals during a global pandemic can carry a heavy burden. The prolonged exposure to widespread death and suffering is a very painful experience for humans to make sense of. Symptoms of vicarious traumatization mimic the trauma response and can lead to burnout, as well as the same health issues that an overactive autonomic nervous system presents.
