The 2009 ABC Daycare fire in Hermosillo, Mexico killed 49 children, severely injured 16, and left the parents of 55 more wondering about their child's health. The experiences of Latino(a) helping professionals who worked with the community of grieving parents were explored. Though their secondary traumatic stress decreased with time and debriefing, a qualitative analysis of interviews suggested that working with severe trauma has lasting effects. Cross-cultural debriefing is also discussed.
