The workplace produces trauma whether we like to believe it or not. Trauma is a type of damage to the psyche that occurs as a result of a traumatic event. A traumatic event involves a single experience, or an enduring, or repeating event or events, which completely overwhelm the individual’s ability to cope or integrate the ideas and emotions involved with that experience. Wade Younger often refers to this as an “exploding noema.” The sense of being overwhelmed can be delayed by weeks or even years, as the person struggles to cope with the immediate danger. Trauma can be caused by a wide variety of events, but there are a few common aspects. There is frequently a violation of the person’s familiar ideas about the world and of their human rights that puts the person in a state of extreme confusion and insecurity. This is also seen when a person is violated or betrayed by an institution that they depended on for survival. All of this can leave a person feeling completely defeated.
The Comeback Victory is not just a book, but rather, a resource that helps heal wounded workplaces. Wade Younger uses tools and techniques learned from his Butterfly Gateway foundation and applied principals from trauma awareness and recovery. Wade has found a common link between trauma recovery and healing workplace stress.
This book will help you release the cumulative effects of workplace anxiety. Corporations spend millions of dollars a year on anxiety related illnesses because employees are under a great deal of stress outside of the workplace as well.
The Comeback Victory addresses how individuals can care for themselves on a daily basis verses solely relying on outside sources to cure and restore their health and spirit. The Comeback Victory is all about resurrecting inner peace, reestablishing the feeling of being centered, in control, and of wellness.
