Summary
Traumatic Experiences of Nurses is a practical and sympathetic guide for professionals at all levels of nursing, from students through to managers. Huub Buyssen not only describes examples of traumatic events which nurses are confronted with but also shows them how they can help themselves and colleagues to recover. In Part I, nurses and nursing assistants tell their own stories, describing vividly the emotional aftermath of disturbing events. In Part II Buyssen provides invaluable advice and guidelines on how to cope, including how to recognise a psychotrauma, how to work towards a full recovery, when to call in professional help, how to organise a support team within institutions, and how to help colleagues who have been through traumatic events. There is a growing realization that nurses can be badly affected by the emotionally disturbing events they become involved with regularly in their jobs. Huub Buyssen addresses this problem, and what you can do about it
