Do you have any advice for people regarding Consultants?
Be patient and empathetic. Refine your listening skills. Make sure you validate and never respond with shock or dismay to anything you are told. Keep all in a confidential manner. Never disclose what someone tells you confidentially. Have compassion always.
How long have you been involved in your industry?
For approximately thirty years, I have been involved in these fields in one form or another and currently write articles and post them on an on line support group for bereaved parents. This is my first comprehensive book which majors on child loss, but includes other types of victimization.

All of the above that have already been mentioned. Good listening skills, an empathetic ear, a heart of compassion, a willingness to validate and permit people to vent whenever necessary, and a willingness to put the needs of others before your own, at times.
