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.
