We face those in trauma every day–victims, witnesses, and even our own co-workers. When we respond well to trauma, we build trust and make it more likely that those in need get help. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to respond well because of the way that trauma affects the brain, both of the person in trauma and those who are interacting with him or her. In this presentation, Katharine Manning, author of The Empathetic Workplace and an attorney with more than 25 years’ experience with issues of trauma and victimization, discusses how trauma affects us and the five steps to an appropriate and supportive response to those in trauma: listen, acknowledge, share, empower, and return.
