More Good Words: Grief in the Workplace
Why Grief in the Workplace?
When death comes to the workplace—either through a co-worker’s death or the death of a worker’s own loved one—people grieve and may not know what to do.
More Good Words: Grief in the Workplace teaches that workplace grief has its own set of complications that affect the daily and ongoing experience of being an employer or employee. Grief is an internal emotional response to loss, and mourning involves external actions that help us work through the grief. Even if we did not know the person who has died very well, we are affected by the changes that occur because of his or her death. We face issues of trust, sadness, and even hopelessness; often, we are led to confront the possibility of our own eventual death. Grief in the Workplace offers many useful activities that enable managers to lead employees at such difficult times and employees to provide help and solace to each other.
This book is perfect for workplace training about crises, tragedy, trauma, and grief.
