Preventing Workplace Violence
We are reminded of the risk of workplace violence every time we hear of a tragic shooting on the news. As wellness professionals, we often have a broad contact with individuals who are struggling and with the structures of organizations that can have an influence on whether those individuals get help or act out their anger and frustration. In this session we will look at risk factors that can be identified to indicate that an individual needs additional assessment and help and at the organizational structures that can be implemented to reduce the risk of violence in your workplace. It is important that, as wellness professionals, we look at how to address this extreme form of unhealthy behavior.
1. Participants will be able to identify individual risk factors that should be referred for assessment and intervention.
2. Participants will learn about organizational factors that increase the risk that an unstable worker will act out violently
3. Participants will learn key organizational changes that can be implemented to provide a healthier and more stable workplace.
