Summary:
"This book applies a trauma-informed care framework to library services. This approach can foster empathetic service, positive patron encounters, and a trusting workplace"-- Provided by publisher.
Psychological trauma can result from a single painful event, a prolonged event, recurrent events, or a series of ongoing, relentless stresses. Tolley applies a trauma-informed care framework to library services. This approach can foster empathetic service, positive patron encounters, and a trusting workplace. It can also help library workforces smooth over the rough edges when a staff member exhibits abrasive behavior, and can be a means of preventing burnout, secondary traumatization, and impaired functioning by staff. -- adapted from Prologue and Chapter 2.
