Museums today confront a variety of social, political, environmental concerns and challenges. While necessary, these efforts are not without consequence for museum and culture sector employees. What happens when the commonplace stresses of work and life move beyond the interpersonal or organisational into trauma-based ones, and staff must confront and cope with such realities?
