Industrial/Organizational Development, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Industrial/Organizational Development needs are met by I/O psychologists and counsellors. Many are also trained as Executive Coaches. If your company is facing issues with worker behavior and attitudes, low performance or a lack of leadership and productivity, it may be a good time to enroll the services of an Industrial/Organizational Development consultant.
Many people in the global workforce are working in roles where they don't really belong. When someone is not fulfilling their personal objectives, or if their careers don't match their personal values and goals, they are bound to become disillusioned and depressed. As a result of poor work-life balance, poor job satisfaction and lack of fulfillment in their roles in a company, people's performance standards will drop and they will become unproductive.
The management styles and social norms within a company also affects individual behavior within the organization. I/O psychologists and counsellors or coaches assess these issues within a company to help improve individual performance and psychological well being within a company. The task is performed by assessing organizational structures, and role expectations to see how those factors influence the behavior or individuals in an organization. Through understanding these factors the aim is to improve individual mental health and performance which will benefit the company as a whole.
I/O psychologists and counsellors focus on six main areas, including training and developments, employee selection, ergonomics, performance management, work life, and organizational management. Most Industrial/Organizational Development psychologists specialize in one or more of the fields. The psychologist will perform screening tests and surveys and observe a range of tasks to see which areas of a business can benefit from Industrial/Organizational Development.

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.
