    This is a wonderful article. I greatly appreciate anyone who brings awareness to this issue. A family attorney’s exposure to STS, however, is even greater than the article portrays. The stress, in my view, is not entirely “secondary.” Family law attorneys not only “listen” to the traumatic events. Attorneys are typically expected to do something (sometimes immediately) to fix the situation. And, this expectation makes the stress somewhat “primary” in nature. In certain cases, the stories leave the attorney questioning what more he or she could have done to prevent the violence, abuse, kidnapping, etc. I do not doubt for a moment that my health was significantly affected by the enormous stress from constant exposure to high conflict cases, including domestic violence, rape, parental alienation, attempted murder, parental kidnapping, and many others.
