This workbook is designed to provide you with practical help in addressing the effects of workplace stress, burnout and trauma. You will see that it is designed as a highly interactive tool and you are encouraged to make the book your own by responding to the frequent questions, reflections and self-assessments.

The material has been organized into three separate sections and we believe that you will find it most helpful to work through the book in sequence as each chapter builds on the work you have done previously.

SECTION 1: The five chapters in Section 1 provide an introduction and orientation to the issues of workplace stress in trauma-exposed environments – what it is, how it works, what helps and what effects it has.

SECTION 2: This section provides self-assessment tools that allow you to determine your current risk and resiliency profile, self-care status, and stress symptom profile.

SECTION 3: This final section supports you as you build your personal wellness plans for both your personal life and your work life.

Please remember that this guide is designed to support you over the longer terms, so we also encourage you to reuse the self-assessment tools at regular intervals and to update your wellness plans.


“Dr. Patricia Fisher has done it again. This comprehensive, highly accessible workbook for individuals beautifully complements her recent workbook for work groups. Fisher seamlessly integrates the current research from organizational development, stress, trauma, management theory, and psychophysiology to offer clear, direct descriptions of risk and resilience factors for people engaged in trauma work. The book includes excellent questionnaires for self-reflection, encouraging readers to attend to details of the way they work and how their work affects them. The extensive reference list is a bonus for clinicians and scholars. An invaluable resource for those who are new to trauma work and for more experienced workers alike.” Laurie Anne Pearlman, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist. Co-author, Treating Traumatic Bereavement: A Practitioner’s Guide
