Abstract

Divides corporate disasters into two kinds: soft disasters, e.g. computer‐related incidents which are non‐life‐threatening (business disasters); and hard disasters — a violent invasion of one's workspace. Charts these are the ones with the potential to cause prolonged stress/psychological trauma. Looks at patterns of response, trauma, staff turnover and support, and support and understanding. Points out some disasters can have a positive side, with certain people coming out stronger, having coped with the problems involved.
