Or how about when people say, “if I was ever attacked in a dark parking lot, I would…” But when they are actually confronted with that or a similar traumatic event, they freeze up?"
Our normal response to hearing these stories is “What a fool! Why or how could anyone do that?” But when you read this illuminating little book by Liz Royle, PhD and Catherine Kerr, CPsychol, you will understand why human beings react the way they do to these and other types of traumatic life events.
The authors have years of expertise and knowledge in the field of trauma education and it shows through the powerful examples and practical activities that are provided throughout the book. When you read the concepts and ideas surrounding trauma recovery, it definitely helps to have real-life examples and scenarios to drive the points home.
If your work involves management of traumatic incidents, whether you are a first-responder, consulting or advising an organization, facilitating the recovery of those affected by trauma, or simply interested in the psychology of human reactions, then is just the book for you. It provides incredibly useful information on the dynamics of human response, methods of effective trauma recovery for groups, dealing with deaths in the workplace, and provides a wealth of resources for strategic management through proactive policies and training options managers and supervisors. One thing that was especially illuminating was the section on post traumatic growth and expectancy recovery. We’ve all heard of post traumatic stress disorder, but rarely does anyone talk about the flip side of the coin, especially since there is a tendency in popular culture to focus the incurable soldier whose life is “permanently damaged” and who cannot be “cured” of his trauma. However, the authors reveal research and clinical data supporting post traumatic growth that is uplifting and should be discussed as opportunity to rebuild life that is stronger and more resilient after suffering the distressing effects of trauma.
