A safe pair of hands

KR Trauma Support specialises in providing services for the management of psychological trauma to organisations and their staff on a global basis. When a traumatic incident happens, it can be devastating for all those involved. The impact can hit you psychologically and financially and disrupt the smooth running of your organisation.

Our aim is to ensure that, when traumatic incidents strike, you have access to the information, support and resources that will help you to recover quickly and effectively. Trauma has become one of those over-used phrases applied to every day distressing situations yet true trauma is devastating. It is difficult to provide an exhaustive list of events that may be traumatic to an individual but the American Psychiatric Association defines a traumatic event as one which involves exposure to actual or threatened death, serious injury or sexual violence.  Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) V American Psychiatric Association 2013

People may be affected directly or as witnesses or because their occupation leads to repeated and extreme exposure for instance emergency services workers. In the workplace, potentially traumatic events can include

  • Sudden death or suicide
  • Serious assault or injury
  • Accidents and near-misses
  • Robberies
  • Threatening encounters with customers
Your leadership, your organisational skills and your good judgement ensured that the team met its objectives. I congratulate you on the planning and preparation that made it possible.
