Employee Post-Captivity Reintegration Workshop

June 13, 2018, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$150.00 – $300.00

Your Duty of Care for Employees Returning from Captivity

American corporations, non-profits and faith-based organizations increasingly operate in kidnap hotspots. While many have long-term security programs, including preventive and kidnap operational response plans, few have procedures to support employees returning from captivity. Failure to meet this aspect of duty of care can leave organizations exposed to legal challenges.

This two-hour workshop will give you the “how to” on hostage reintegration, including health and mental health, assistance with practical challenges, return to work best practices, and strategies to manage the long-term impacts of captivity.


David Rohde is a double Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and the Online News Director for The New Yorker. He was kidnapped in Afghanistan and held for 7 months in 2008. David will speak first-hand on post-captivity needs, the challenges a former hostage will face and employer best practices for post-captivity reintegration.

Liz Goetter, PhD of Massachusetts General Hospital is the Outpatient Clinic Director of the Home Base program at Massachusetts General Hospital. She is experienced in a variety of evidence-based assessment methods and cognitive behavioral therapies for PTSD, including Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy. She will speak on the psychological impacts of captivity and what that means for your employee coming home.

Rachel Briggs is Executive Director of Hostage US. She is the world’s leading expert on hostage and family support and has worked on hundreds of cases over the past 15 years. She will guide organizations on post-captivity support including useful processes, procedures and resources.
