We are facing unprecedented challenges as our nation confronts a pandemic, a racial reckoning, and economic and political turmoil simultaneously. Rates of anxiety and depression have tripled; meanwhile, communication skills are dwindling. The way we support each other through this challenging time will have lasting effects. When we respond well to those in trauma, we build strong bonds of trust and enhance communication.
Katharine Manning is the author of The Empathetic Workplace: Five Steps to a Compassionate, Calm, and Confident Response to Trauma on the Job. She’s also an attorney with more than 25 years’ experience on issues of trauma and victimization, including 15 years as the Justice Department’s Senior Attorney Advisor on victim rights.
