Dr. Beavers leads the Trauma Management for CRA and has provided services during many "headline events." She was called to provide services to victims and to management in a shooting at a major shopping center in Atlanta. She was deployed to Oklahoma City in the wake of the bombing of the Federal Building, providing crisis response to the employees of the Oklahoma Water Resources Board where the drive shaft of the bomber's truck sliced through their building.
Following the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center, she served as part of the team of crisis professionals providing services in NY City, making her way through that devastated area to provide counseling and to support management. Twice more, she was called back to provide post-traumatic consulting to other mental health professionals who had been affected by their own experiences there.
Tragedy struck in Atlanta with the "Day Trader Shooting," in which a man entered an office building, coldly killed four people, then crossed the street to another building and killed five more. Dr. Beavers was on site the next morning, advising management, establishing a counseling center, and overseeing the services of the crisis response professionals.
She has advised many of the Fortune 100 companies on dealing with threats of violence, both from outside and within their companies. Recognized for her responsiveness, creativity and compassion in troubling times, she has appeared on CNN and the Fox network as a crisis expert. read more..
