The Cost of Caring

  • La Trobe Art Institute 121 View Street Bendigo, VIC, 3550 Australia (map)

Christine Cummins, Lucy Mayes, Tamara Marwood

How do people working in stressful professional roles cope? What’s it like to work in such difficult situations as refugee detention? Does it sap positive energy or help build resiliance? Tamara Marwood talks to Christine Cummins (Dignity in a Teacup) and Lucy Mayes (Beyond the Stethoscope) about caring and its cost, for individuals and for communities. Behind the statistics, what are the stories people tell about their own experiences?
