Summary
"This much-needed new book, based on the authors' original research and clinical experience, describes the consequences of trauma exposure on police officers, firefighters, and paramedics. Weaving data collected in large-scale quantitative studies with the personal stories of responders shared in qualitative interviews, this account explores the personal, organizational, and societal factors that can ameliorate or exacerbate traumatic response." "Stress theory, organizational theory, crisis theory, and trauma theory provide a framework for understanding trauma responses and guiding intervention strategies. Using an ecological perspective, the authors explore interventions spanning prevention, disaster response, and follow-up, on individual, family, group, organizational, and community levels. They provide specific suggestions for planning intervention programs, developing trauma response teams, training emergency service responders and mental health professionals, and evaluating the effectiveness of services provided."--Jacket
