Overview

Traumatic events, such as accidents, verbal abuse, violent attacks, sudden deaths, or suicides, in the workplace are certainly not common, but they do happen. An organization may also find itself caught up in wider scale events such as natural disasters or acts of terrorism. All of these changes to the status quo can create confusion and chaos, or potentially trigger organizational paralysis. The International Handbook of Workplace Trauma Support provides a comprehensive overview of contemporary standards and best practice techniques for organizations that draws from the latest research findings and experience of clinicians, academics, practitioners, and other leading authorities on trauma support from around the world. This global perspective allows for a far greater range of support and intervention options to meet unique scenarios and workplace resources.

Coverage includes such topics as the history of trauma support, legal and business imperatives to manage trauma, models of trauma support, the latest developments in the field, post-trauma support, and applications within organizations, including the military. A variety of practical tools, case studies, and checklists enhance the discussion of research and best practices. This is an invaluable reference and essential reading for those seeking to minimize the impact of trauma on individual associates and the greater workplace.

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)
