Book Announcement

Jim LaPierre, LCSW, CCS, founder of Higher Ground Services, has published a book that serves as a guide for healers and helpers (professionals, paraprofessionals and folks who just do it naturally in every part of their lives).


"My goal is to build an online community for those of us in the trenches of social services, the medical field, and first responders. I wanna talk about coming back from burnout, compassion fatigue, moral injury, and vicarious & secondary trauma." -LaPierre
