For many, it’s the most difficult and unpredictable part of the workplace investigation — conducting the interview. This is especially the case when the witness has suffered trauma. And it’s likely to happen, considering these sobering statistics:
- Seven to eight percent will have PTSD at some point in their lifetimes.
- Eight million adults will experience PTSD in a given year. This is only a small number of the people that experience a trauma.
- Ten percent of women will experience PTSD at some point in their lifetimes, compared with four percent of men.
Shana Palmieri, LCSW, will provide you with a set of tools to handle these challenging interviews. During this 60-minute webinar, Ms. Palmieri, the co-founder and COO of Xferall, will explain the connection between trauma and memory and its implications for the interview. Attendees will learn the considerations of a trauma-influenced interview. This class focuses on the practical and clinical side of managing employees who have experienced trauma, rather than the legal side.
