A bank teller robbed one too many times. A paramedic who cannot save his own father’s life. A prostitute who becomes an advocate for sex workers. These are a few tales from the trenches of workers tormented by ill fortune, both natural and man-made.
Join us online as Anne Hillerman, New York Times award-winning crime fiction writer, leads a lively discussion with Bob Larsen, MD, MPH, resident alum, about his first book, Wounded Workers: Tales from a Working Man’s Shrink. Not only will “Dr. Bob” recount stories of America’s workforce subjected to physical and psychological trauma for doing their jobs, but he will also share how he started his writing journey and how he has been able to bring solace to those individuals who needed his help, while at the same time highlighting some of the woes of today’s workforce.
