When Trauma Survivors Return to Work: Understanding Emotional Recovery explains how managers and co-workers can learn to foster the process of emotional recovery for traumatized employees returning to the workplace.
No other resource teaches managers and co-workers how to treat fellow co-workers returning to the workplace after experiencing a violent accident, rape, a burglary, or armed robbery. Or what to say to those who have just been told they have a terminal illness. Or how to treat an employee whose close family member has committed suicide. It is not helpful for co-workers to deny such traumatic events or remain silent, which is what happens. Or for managers to avoid directly communicating with traumatized employees. Is there a short and simple way to teach managers and co-workers how to be truly helpful to such wounded people? The answer is Dr. Barski-Carrow’s illuminating, example-filled book, When Trauma Survivors Return to Work: Understanding Emotional Recovery.
