    LT EditorPreventing Workplace Meltdown: An Employer's Guide to Maintaining a Psychologically Safe Workplace
    A Carswell Implementation Guide

    This book is about mental injuries in the workplace — what they are, how to
    assess the risks of their occurrence, how to prevent legal liability for them and
    how to create psychologically safe workplaces. Mental injury at work has become a recognized category of harm in the law over the last 15 years and every year it becomes more important for employers to understand what it is and how to prevent it. In this book, the authors combine their perspectives on the legal imperative to provide a psychologically safe work environment with strategies and stories that come from actual experiences in the field of workplace mental health.

    By sharing the worst case scenario — being held legally liable for causing mental injury to an employee — along with the successful approaches used by others, you will learn what to avoid as well as practical strategies to prevent problems. About the author     Order Today
