How do people cope with having "caused" a terrible accident? How do they cope when they survive and have to live with the consequences ever after? We tend to blame and forget professionals who cause incidents and accidents, but they are victims too. They are second victims whose experiences of an incident or adverse event can be as traumatic as that of the first victims’. Yet information on second victimhood and its relationship to safety, about what is known and what organizations might need to do, is difficult to find. Thoroughly exploring an emerging topic with great relevance to safety culture, Second Victim: Error, Guilt, Trauma, and Resilience examines the lived experience of second victims. It goes through what we know about trauma, guilt, forgiveness, and injustice and how these might be felt by the second victim. The author discusses how to conduct investigations of incidents that do not alienate second victims or make them feel even worse. It explores the importance support and resilience and where the responsibilities for creating it may lie. Drawing on his unique background as psychologist, airline pilot, and safety specialist, and his own experiences with helping second victims from a variety of backgrounds, Sidney Dekker has written a powerful, moving account of the experience of the second victim. It forms compelling reading for practitioners, risk managers, human resources managers, safety experts, mental health workers, regulators, the judiciary, and many other professionals. Dekker provides a strong theoretical background to promote understanding of the situation of the second victim and solid practical advice about how to deal with trauma that continues after an event leading to preventable harm or even avoidable death of a patient, consumer, or colleague.

In this world there is true evil. This book is based on real people, places and sinister events which occurred in the small town of Brooksville, Florida. The weave of this NATIONALLY REPORTED story begins as Dakota, an up-and-coming restaurant manager who wears a conspicuous scar, is being rushed to a mental health facility in a state of P.T.S.D. panic. After being locked in the dreaded "Dark Side", he reflects back to a much happier time when he searched for romance in his curious little town. The pages quickly turn revealing a devious plot involving a desperately driven stage mom and her mysterious pageant daughter, who will stop at nothing to win a crown. Will Dakota be keen to several premonitions of mayhem? Does his friend the small-town police chief let justice slip away? Will he escape from the "Dark Side" and seek revenge in search of peace, or remain in the shadows forever? Many of us feel safe and secure living our daily lives. However, we all dwell in a crime-stained society where a door to unimaginable evil can swiftly open. Frantically, the innocent become hunted and that frail veil of security is torn away. Perhaps after you read of Dakota's supernatural premonitions and contacts, you will become keenly aware of your own divine warnings, God willing.

For thirty-five years and through thirteen editions, Jim Henslin's Down to Earth Sociology has opened new windows onto the social realities that shape our world. Now in its fourteenth edition, the most popular anthology in sociology includes new articles on our changing world while also retaining its classic must-read essays. Focusing on social interaction in everyday life, the forty-six selections bring students face-to-face with the twin projects of contemporary sociology: understanding the individual's experience of society and analyzing social structure. The fourteenth edition's exceptional new readings include selections on the role of sympathy in everyday life, mistaken perceptions of the American family, the effects of a criminal record on getting a job, and the major social trends affecting our future. Together with these essential new articles, the selections by Peter Berger, Herbert Gans, Erving Goffman, Donna Eder, Zella Luria, C. Wright Mills, Deborah Tannen, Barrie Thorne, Sidney Katz, Philip Zimbardo, and many others provide firsthand reporting that gives students a sense of "being there." Henslin also explains basic methods of social research, providing insight into how sociologists explore the social world. The selections in Down to Earth Sociology highlight the most significant themes of contemporary sociology, ranging from the sociology of gender, power, politics, and religion to the contemporary crises of racial tension, crime, rape, poverty, and homelessness.

The education and degrees were supposed to help. His beautiful wife, Clara, and their house on the hill should make him happy. The partnership with one of Kentucky's largest law firms should make him proud. However, nothing can cage the beast within him. Nothing or no one can make John Johnson happy; he only feels peace when he causes someone else pain. Sexually abused by his father when he was six-years-old, John isn't able to bury the ghost in his nightmares. He vows to extract revenge on his parents-for his father who administered the abuse and for his mother who looked the other way. He blames them for his deviant ways and unhappy life. Clara, who is seven months pregnant, believes John is the perfect husband and provider. His parents, John and Cynthia, don't even know he's married. But his double life is about to become public. From strangers to friends, and from Chicago to Kentucky, no one is safe when John's life begins to take a downward spiral. No longer able to control his impulses and taste for blood, John begins to release the beast within him.
