Re: It’s As Simple As Following the Manual… Or Is It?

Love the post, Kate! As a longtime "builder" of IKEA furniture and a big talker about the need for trauma-informed tools for all sectors, you are spot on with you blog post! Good luck with your new job and hopefully there are resources on ACN that can help. And if you don't find them, reach out to the community and I bet someone has been struggling with something similar.

A PGW worker is killed by an explosion in 2016 and his coworkers are still dealing with the emotional toll more than two years later. A longtime school nurse calls it quits when the school police officer who broke up fights between students has a heart attack and dies. A parole officer tries to deal with the personal emotional toll when one of his parolees commits a rape and a murder. These are a few of the tales of secondary traumatic stress — the stress that results from indirect exposure...
