Part of being in a helping profession such as teaching is responding to others' behaviors. Add to that the lurking specter of disaster in which we are responsible for the safety of 30 children plus at once plus the long work hours, and it's the recipe for a traumatic response on the part of the educator. This episode with our Professional Crisis Tamer discusses the cognitive and emotional components of a crisis, Moral Distress, and Compassion Fatigue.
Lisa Dinhofer, MA, CT is The Crisis Tamer. She works with subject matter and circumstances most people turn away from. Lisa mentors companies past traumatic events, workplace abuse and disastrous communications to regain stability and establish a new normal. Lisa was an employee at the World Trade Center during the 1993 bombing and was still working in NYC during 9/11. She draws from those first hand experiences of trauma in the workplace and lessons learned from other workplace tragedies. Lisa is a certified Thanatologist, trained counselor and communication expert with over 18 years of professional experience training, consulting, coaching and speaking on effective messaging and situational management for traumatic or unexpected loss, workplace bullying and sexual harassment, difficult conversations and unintended outcomes, chronic conflict and performance development within high intensity front-line occupations and business environments.
