· Workplace Mental Health Series Book 1 · Kevin William Grant

About this ebook

Stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, bullying, and burnout have all become "accepted realities" of the modern workplace. This book will unpack contemporary workplace realities, educate you about PTSD, and help you build your personalized recovery plan for transformation and recovery.

This recovery program has seven core purposes:

Validate your current situation. This recovery program begins by validating your experiences and breaking through any denial you may be experiencing by examining all the ways you could be traumatized at work.

Identify your realities. Once you understand how you've been traumatized, you'll learn about how PTSD develops and how to break through the defenses that protect you from the painful experiences you're facing.

Understand workplace PTSD. Armed with a deeper understanding of what PTSD is, how it develops, and how you react to trauma, you will be able to identify the support you'll need to heal and recover.

Build your recovery team and develop your action plan. Useful tools and techniques will help you connect with and build your team of support professionals and advocates. Once you begin working with your team, you'll start the recovery process by acquiring a set of skills and techniques to help you weather the storm and begin healing.

Grieve, mourn, and let go. Recovery will take you on a journey of grieving, mourning, and letting go, which will transport you to a new sense of calm and acceptance. I'll break down this journey into the stages you'll travel through to get to the other side.

Come to terms with and recover from the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The COVID-19 global Pandemic has left a lasting impact on all our lives. I will review the Pandemic's mental health, physical health, and social implications with tools and techniques that will help you manage the trauma and stress the Pandemic brings.
