HMC HealthWorks offers a critical look into work-related traumatic stress in an article written by CEO and Founder, Dr. Janis DiMonaco, and senior clinicians Jane Wolfe, Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations, and Suzanne Smolkin, Vice President of Behavioral Health. "Helping Employees Cope with Workplace Trauma", appeared in Benefits Magazine, the trade publication available to members of the International Association of Employee Benefits Plans (www.ifepb.org).
With our organization's commitment toward the improvement in population health, we point out that employers may not be able to prevent work-related traumatic stress among employees, but through responses including critical incident stress debriefing, or CISD, options are available.
