A bank teller robbed one time too many, a paramedic who can't save his father's life, a prostitute who becomes an advocate for sex workers¯these are America's wounded workers, damaged in and by their jobs, and sent as a result to one of the nation's leading occupational psychiatrists, the man known as Dr. Bob. Dr. Robert C. Larsen, M.D., MPH, has tales to tell. He has filled an honoured three-decade career treating the unfortunate, and sometimes tragic, personal responses to horrific and yet common critical incidents on the job.

Now he has compiled these deeply human stories into WOUNDED WORKERS. Clinical terminology is minimized in these stories of workers subjected to shootings, amputations, sexual assaults, and healthcare-induced disabilities, told in a way readers can relate to as they learn of the plight, courage, and persistence of victims who could be their neighbour, friend, or family member.
