Mindful Organisational Culture

Prevention of collective stress and trauma dynamics within organisations

In order to break through the cycle of stress and trauma dynamics, an organisational culture characterised by mindfulness is important. The mindfulness of the staff members is directed towards their own stress and reaction patterns on the one hand, and structural problems on the other (for example, safety management, or information flow within the organisation), which can all exacerbate the stress and trauma dynamics.

This includes the introduction and practice of stress- and trauma-sensitive communication. If all staff members learn to adopt appropriate communication strategies suitable for everyday working life, this enhances the problem-solving and constructive cooperation in the teams.
