Trauma management

Incidents like aggression and/or threats, fire, (armed) attack, violence, accidents, burglary, suicide or sudden death of a colleague… are traumatic experiences which when not well treated can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD°;  This stress disorder can lead to the impairment of the collaborator and at worst to a long sick leave from work.  Some 10 % of the victims are struggling over a long period   to cope with a trauma. If the traumatic experience can be treated on time, the stress disorder does not appear in most cases.  Being expertly helped by a professional can be of crucial importance in this.

Our offer about trauma treatment goes as follows:

For organisations:

  • Psychological help, debriefing and coaching of workers after a shocking or traumatic event or experience by means of individual and/or group talks
  • Follow-up talks and care of the concerned workers individually or as a group
  • Training about care and follow up in case of a traumatic incident for executive staff, social workers … within the organisation
  • Training for collaborators upon how they can best help themselves and their colleagues when experiencing a trauma

For individuals:

  • Psychological help, debriefing and accompaniment after a schocking event or a traumatic experience by means of individual talks.
  • Follow-up talks and care of the concerned persons.

Help and management are based on scientific methods, training programs are made ready to measure for the organisation after preparatory talks.
