As a career coach, I've helped many clients either currently in toxic work environments or those who left, but still feel shaken to the core by their past experiences.
In this episode, I connect with trauma expert, Dr. Randall Bell to discuss ways to help individuals still reeling from negative work experiences and strategies to help them not only survive, but also thrive as they embark upon the next chapter of their career.
Randall Bell, PhD, is a sociologist and economist who specializes in disaster recovery projects.
No stranger to how harsh the world is, Dr. Bell has consulted in more tragedies around the world than anyone. He was retained for the World Trade Center, Flight 93, Sandy Hook, BP Oil Spill, Hurricane Katrina, the Bikini Atoll Nuclear Test sites, the BP Oil spill, the Northridge earthquake, OJ Simpson, Jon Benet Ramsey, Heaven's Gate, and hundreds of other cases. He has been retained by the Federal Governments of the United States, Canada, and Australia to help resolve numerous crises, and his work has generated billions of dollars to rebuild damaged communities.
Dr. Bell’s investigations have taken him to 50 states, and seven continents. Having met with countless victims, he earned the nickname of Master of Disaster. In every case, Dr. Bell observed the emotional consequences and how some fared better than others. He was inspired to put his unique research skills to work and study the cycle of trauma.
