S1-E5 Kozarov and the Need for Purpose

When work exposes you to the dark side of life

Season 01 Episode 05 challenges listeners to think about highly confronting scenarios. We caution that the episode discusses suicide and exposure to horrific scenarios, like child pornography and abuse. This is addressed because this is a reality of work for many people, including those who must analyse the complex nature of these life events and grapple with how the legal circumstances are treated. But what is the impact of this vicarious trauma? For some, the exposures threaten life quality or cause loss of life.
