Work place war zone.
Traumatic stress is a physiological condition brought to general public attention following the return home of soldiers from the Vietnam war in that instance it was branded as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Today we are re-branding this war zone identified wound as Present traumatic stress. Such condition is extremely well understood within the corporate world yet they continue to replace the fallen front line soldiers with cannon fodder brought in from unemployed forces, under the pretentious enticement of financial carrots.
Now days with the advantage of experience, observation, knowledge & scientifically proven hindsight it is obvious this normal condition of physiological over load has certainly been present within society for ever, however the sheer concentration of individuals experiencing identical symptoms & degree of emotional & physiological incapacity to manage & hold stable domestic & social relationships on return from war service was exemplary. There was a break through to the cultural lies of keeping a “stiff upper lip”. The establishment simply had to take some responsibility for the care & rehabilitation of those bitterly scarred by repetitious exposure to the carnage & atrocities experienced in front line war fare.
Now highly apparent in the war zone where higher command demands soldiers to do battle & dodge the vitriolic bullets & charges of vile abuse inflicted upon them with the intention of defending the status of the represented product. Concentration of expectation to such exposure is now highly apparent on the front line of duty in customer service for every day occupations from teachers to bus operators to front line product support teams in the world biscuits & chips.
Yes these front line service people from teachers & bus operators, to call centre individuals to our former Prime Minister are being endlessly exposed to tirades of the most disgusting unacceptable abuse, in the endless drive for higher performance with increased personal tolerance & so the front line take their toll.
Mankind is everything but kind, “IT” has become utterly unconscious, impersonal, denying IT’s insatiable unsustainable egotistical lust to be king of the castle.
Modern day castles are the corporate models which have the currency of money flowing through its heartless technological nerve centre to such degree that it has lost all sense of connection to emotional sensitivity to the very conduit through which the impulses travel, just as this overload occurs within molecular structure, the conductor progressively breaks down, crystallizes, or ruptures & needs to be rewired or replaced like a blown light globe or flickering florescent tube. People treated like Old “blown globes” are “let go”, dumped to the bin & replaced.
Fortunately humans are not light globes, they are all unique individuals with varying degrees & tolerance capacity, like all bright young soldiers, however when they are exposed to extreme & repetitious voltage shocks for an extended period our & their adrenal system overloads our auto immune capacity for tolerance & dis-ease resistance & so we are seeing the increase in collapse to varying conditions of disease, which burden the medical & penal system to overload.
In the past three weeks we have attended work places to support numerous employees who have been shock, threatened & consequently traumatised by by five supposedly “inexplicable deaths”, two suicides, 28 redundancies & or outright threats of dismissal of fellow employees.
So you will see that modern day corporate workers have joined with soldiers in an insidious “hidden cold” war zone and as this wonderful Sally Sara ABC Foreign Correspondent article proves, helpers & carers playing Simpson in the battle field of social welfare must be aware of the cumulative influence of exposure in their duty to the nefarious influence of vicarious trauma.
If you, members of your work team or family identify with these sentiments then seeking regular Professional Supervision from experienced & registered independent Supervisors is essential for self care maintenance to deal with, release & further avoid this unconscious accumulation & dangerous health threatening tolerance of vicarious trauma to insure against overload & burnout.
