Anouck Heulot is a psychologist for the Pobos consultancy, which works with workers confronted with traumatic events or burned out. For several weeks, she has supported caregivers, employees of funeral directors, and other front-line workers. “For the staff of nursing homes, for example, it’s really very hard.
