When You Face a Traumatic Event

This is the last of the first series of video products (Series #1) for's video education training for HR, EAPs, and corporate wellness programs.

Why did we select this topic? See it.

Throughout the year, gets phone calls from workforce management professionals and EAPs, business owners, and HR professionals asking for information -- handouts or educational material to give employees who have faced a traumatic or critical incident.

Some of these events are shootings, tornadoes, etc.
About the best we could offer before this product was tip sheet material or stress management information, but that doesn't cut it.

This product fills the need more effectively to help employees prepare for and to seek effective help for traumatic stress.

Imagine, for example, being able to email every employee a ten minute video or web application on the subject of traumatic stress and what to about it? This product permits this functionality.

The idea is to help employees deal with post-traumatic stress, prepare them for seeking and accepting help, and helping them prevent PTSD.

Key benefits and promises of this product.

►Intervene effectively and educate employees about traumatic stress.  Help prevent stress induced illness, absenteeism, and behavioral risk issues in the aftermath of a critical incident on- or off-site with your business organization or with business customers you serve.

►Demostrate to the host company or top management that you responded quickly, effectively, and with initiative using smart tools that prove the efficacy and cost-benefit of your services, position, professional help, EAP, wellness, or human resources program.

►Reach employees and family members fast with education that can prevent dysfunctional behaviors and unhealthy decisions that typically follow critical incidents.

►Encourage employees and family members to seek help rather than suffer with symptoms of acute stress from traumatic incidents that could lead to productivity and health problems like Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

►Encourage and motivate employees to participate in critical incident stress management services, diffusings, or CISD opportunities, rather than ignore these crucial services that can preserve and protect health.

►Encourage the development of a work culture with attitudes that take traumatic incidents and traumatic stress seriously. Educate new employees who are first-responders to appreciate the risk and the impact of critical incident stress rather than disregard and minimize its potentially adverse consequences on health, well-being, and productivity.

►Enhance your website and increase your websites' return on investment.

►Stay competitive with companies and providers using more expensive worklife education programs linked to third-parties with hyperlinks off your website to ther marketing channels.

►"Brandable", editable, and modifiable content increases the professionalism and image of your company without logos or marketing distracting marketing messages to

I hope you have a good rest of the week.
