dc.description.abstract Background: There is evidence that ‘‘Type II trauma’’ (TTT) - repeated exposure to traumatic events - can lead to the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). TTT frequently occurs in occupational groups working with children who are themselves victims of trauma.Aim: To conduct a systematic review identifying risk factors for/protective factors against TTT-associated mental ill-health in employees working with traumatised children and explore how this type of work impacts upon social functioning.Method: Databases were searched for relevant studies and supplemented by hand searches.Results: 836 papers were found and 13 were included in the review. The key themes identified were coping mechanisms; social support; personality; demographics; occupational support;work-related stressors; traumatic exposure; organisational satisfaction; training/experience andimpact on life.Conclusion: Unhelpful coping strategies (e.g. denial) appeared to increase the risk of TTT. Training and strong support may be protective and work-related stressors (e.g. excessive workload) appeared detrimental. Despite some positive impacts of the work (e.g. becoming more appreciative of life) many negative impacts were identified, demonstrating the importance of minimising risk factors and maximising protective factors for staff at risk of TTT en_US
