Our Rescuers in Times of Trouble: First Responders and Soul Repair

When danger and emergencies threaten lives, we depend on first responders for help. In this episode, Rita and Susan explore with their guests, the impact of such high stakes, often dangerous work and the moral cost of failure and exhaustion. They also assess the legal and cultural barriers involved in first responders finding support and solutions that chaplains and other spiritual care providers can offer to repair the souls of those who dedicate themselves to our safety and to saving lives.
