Wounded Workers: Tales from a Working Man's Shrink
Book Description
Wounded Workers will grab your attention while experiencing the human response to horrific, yet common critical incidents. Clinical terminology is minimized. There’s no need for a medical degree to understand what these workers go through. Dr. Bob’s personal journey as a working-class kid who becomes a scientist, physician and professor is intertwined with the dynamics of victimization, recovery, and advocacy. Readers will be exposed to stories of workers subjected to shootings, amputations, sexual assaults and healthcare-induced disability. All can relate to the plight, courage and persistence of victims who could be your neighbor, friend, family member or co-worker.

Favorite Quote or Personal Motto

"In the end, we are not defined by the particular product or service we create, but rather the manner in which we affect those we serve. If you are engaging in meaningful work, those for whom you provide service will define your value." Dr. Bob (from Wounded Workers, chapter 36 entitled Giving Back)
