Violence in the Workplace
Presented by George Demers
Violent behavior surrounds us. Could you predict or prevent an individual’s violent behavior?
This workshop will focus on techniques to protect yourself and others in potentially explosive situations, and will introduce procedures for safely managing out of control behavior. These procedures include a review of the various processes involved in an incident, as well as a critical look at situations from the viewpoints of everyone involved in the incident. Methods of assessing, planning, and evaluating each step are included.
Most importantly, guidelines are presented which will help to prevent and avoid potential violence:
- Factors in a Crisis Situation
- Personal Awareness
- Psychological and Physiological Changes
- Mental Preparation
- When Weapons are Involved
This workshop has been presented to public schools, community hospitals, law enforcement, small and large businesses, city and county employees.
