Organizer/Author
The Comfort Garden: Tales from the Trauma Unit
Book reading by Laurie Barkin, RN, MS
As a psychiatric nurse consultant working in SF General Hospital’s Trauma Unit, Barkin routinely evaluated and treated patients with stab wounds, gun shot wounds, and injuries from motor vehicle accidents, fires, and falls. Her book tells her own stories and those of fellow workers in the unit, a workforce under constant and intense pressure, exploring what happens to professional caregivers when exposure to tragedy becomes routine. These are the stories of skilled and dedicated individuals for whom vicarious trauma is a real and harrowing fact of their jobs.
