Autorentext

Sherry Lynn Jones is a registered nurse, retired paramedic, and a critical incident stress management (CISM) educator with more than two decades of experience in civilian and paramilitary emergency services. Jones is the author of a blossoming Trauma Junkie anthology featuring the personal and professional experiences, thoughts, and feelings of emergency responders from both sides of the gurney. Sherry's urban and rural Paramedic experience and nursing in ER trauma centers, inpatient psychiatry, and state corrections merge with ground and air team training with the United States Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol (CAP). As a Lieutenant Colonel, Jones was a key architect in developing CAP's National CISM Program, taking it from concept to full program supporting the organization's 50,000+ emergency services volunteers, addressing a growing need for resilience training and posttrauma response strategies. Sherry is a faculty member of and approved instructor for the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF), and a Fellow of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress (FAAETS). Following her Master of Science in Psychology specializing in Crisis Management and Response, Jones completed her Doctorate in Education, writing her dissertation on Nurses' Occupational Trauma Exposure, Resilience, and Coping Education (http://scholarworks.waldenu.edu/dissertations/2360/). Sherry lives in the Detroit area, serves as CEO of Education Resource Strategies, and is a board member of the Michigan Crisis Response Association, promoting and providing emergency services education. Her most valued duties involve acting as Nona to her grandsons and Dr. Mom to children of two and four feet. Sherry's website is http://www.SherryLynnJones.com



Klappentext

Ride in the back of the ambulance with Sherry Lynn Jones Share the innermost feelings of emergency services workers as they encounter trauma, tragedy, redemption, and even a little humor. Sherry Lynn Jones has been an Emergency Medical Technician, Emergency Room Nurse, prison healthcare practitioner, and an on-scene critical incident debriefer. Most people who have observed or experienced physical, mental or emotional crisis have single perspectives. This book allows readers to stand on both sides of the gurney; it details a progression from innocence to enlightened caregiver to burnout, glimpsing into each stage personally and professionally. "Corrections": the third realm of emergency care behind layers of concrete and barbed wire. Join in the dangers, challenges, and truth-is-stranger-than-fiction humor of this updated and revised second edition of Confessions of a Trauma Junkie. In addition to stories from the streets and ERs, medics, nurses, and corrections officers share perceptions and coping skills from the other side of prisons' cuffs and clanging metal doors. Emergency Service Professionals Praise Confessions of a Trauma Junkie "A must read for those who choose to subject themselves to life at its best and at its worst. Sherry offers insight in the Emergency Response business that most people cannot imagine." --Maj Gen Richard L. Bowling, former Commanding General, USAF Auxiliary (CAP) "Sherry Lynn Jones shares experiences and unique personal insights of first responders. Told with poetry, sensitivity and a touch of humor at times, all are real, providing views into realities EMTs, Nurses, and other first responders encounter. Recommended reading for anyone working with trauma, crises, critical incidents in any profession." -- George W. Doherty, MS, LPC, President Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Institute "Sherry has captured the essence of working with people who have witnessed trauma. It made me cry, it made me laugh, it helped me to understand differently the work of our Emergency Services Personnel. I consider this a 'must read' for all of us who wish to be helpful to those who work in these professions." --Dennis Potter, LMSW, CAADC, CCS, FAAETS, ICISF Faculty "Confessions of a Trauma Junkie is an honest, powerful, and moving account of the emotional realities of helping others! Sherry Lynn Jones gives us a privileged look into the healing professions she knows firsthand. The importance of peer support is beautifully illustrated. This book will deepen the readers respect for those who serve." --Victor Welzant, PsyD, Director of Education and Training, The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc (ICISF) Learn more at www.SherryLynnJones.com Biography & Autobiography : Medical - General
