Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is not just a reference tool to consider the subject in greater detail; it is a workplace essential for individuals and organisations, especially those with responsibility for engaging the service of trauma practitioners." (Counselling at Work, 1 October 2012)

"Those interested in designing workplace programs would do well to examine their reliance on CISM and its efficacy on their clients. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and practitioners." (Choice, 1 December 2012)

"By including international contributions, the editors are able to demonstrate how professionals across a swathe of different cultural or social environments and different disciplines are responding to and managing traumatic events. This helpfully demonstrates the influence of social, political and cultural factors on responses to workplace trauma and support. The book demonstrates quite clearly that one size does not fit all.

Overall the book provides something for everyone who is or may be involved in working with trauma in the workplace. This book is both a reference tool of biblical dimensions and an invaluable workplace tool for practitioners and fororganisations that contract their services." (Therapy Today (BACP Journal), October 2012)
