El sufrimiento secundario que siento es legítimo y se radica en la compasión que siento. Charles Figley define el trauma secundario como “…el estrés resultante del deseo de ayudar a una persona traumatizada o que sufre”. A partir de tal definición básica, los investigadores han estudiado el trauma secundario y el estrés de los cuidadores.
