Employee Assistance, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Employee assistance can help promote the welfare of your employees, and as a result, improve productivity and a happy working environment in your business.
Let's face it, everyone goes through difficulties, experiences distress, and troubles. Crisis doesn't wait until we are ready to deal with it, but rather occur when we're least prepared. Challenges are an inevitable part of our everyday life. Just because your employees are smiling, doesn't mean that they don't experience these difficulties and worries.
It is in the best interest of the employer to provide employee assistance services to help them deal with whatever they are going through. Personal or professional issues can harm the best of workers, affecting their psyches and causing them a range of emotional and physical problems. Poor concentration, fatigue, a lack of motivation, poor immune response, and anger are just some of the symptoms they may be experiencing.
Some of the problems that could be causing trouble in the lives of your employees could include family problems, substance abuse, performance problems, depression, anger management issues, domestic violence, stress, anxiety, divorce, parenting problems and issues with their self-esteem.
Without employee assistance, your company may be in danger. Research has shown the importance of happy, healthy workers on a company's productivity and profitability. It is important to appreciate the impact of these issues on an employees ability to be productive and cope with pressures at work as well.
Employee assistance programs can help take your company to the next level by empowering your employees with suitable coping, communication and behavioural skills. It will help them with human growth and enjoying a better life at work and at home.
If you are looking for a counsellor or psychologist who offers employee assistance therapies to address your business needs, you may want to search the directory to find a professional whose approach will suit you best.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an anxiety disorder that usually starts within the three months of a traumatic incident. It has been reported that in rare cases, PTSD symptoms may only occur after a number of years.
Three groups of symptoms are present in people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Increased anxiety / emotional arousal includes anger or irritability, overwhelming shame or guilt, sleeplessness and self-destructive behaviour. The second group of symptoms, known as intrusive memories, causes flashbacks to the traumatic event and upsetting dreams. The third group of symptoms that a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder patient may experience, includes emotional numbing or avoidance. This group of symptoms includes memory problems, poor concentration, feeling emotionally numb, a sense of hopelessness, and an avoidance of activities that the person used to find enjoyable.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms may be present for a while, disappear and then return again. General stress may increase the symptoms, as can reminders of the traumatic incident.
Therapists who address Post Traumatic Stress Disorder generally use one, or a combination of trauma therapies to treat it. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is commonly used and can help a person to change their reactions to traumatic memories.
Exposure therapy can help a person reduce the amount of fear related to the feelings and thoughts associated with past traumatic events. Cognitive therapy helps a person to change the way he or she thinks about the event and the aftermath of a traumatic incident. It will help a person to identify thoughts that cause fear and anger, and learn ways to replace those thoughts with less stressful and more empowering thoughts.
