Broaden your knowledge of post-trauma by reading this indispensible book written by a Trauma Debriefing expert.

Anyone who has been involved in a traumatic incident may experience post-trauma stress or post-traumatic stress disorder. For some time afterwards and during this period, their productivity and commitment to their organisation can be drastically reduced.

How an organisation treats its staff in the aftermath of a traumatic incident can have a profound effect, not only upon the recovery of the individuals directly involved, but also upon their colleagues and their families.

Organisations need to ensure that they review their contingency planning systems for the smooth running of the business after any critical incident and ensure that the wellbeing of their staff is a high priority.

Not all traumatic incidents are the same. However, the effects will be the same. And so will the solutions.

In-house critical incident management planning is maintain performance and productivity.
