This webinar on Workplace Violence Prevention and Intervention Programs: Critical Elements is presented by Dr. Stephen Hart.
Legal duties and standards of practice related to violence in the workplace have evolved rapidly and substantially over the past twenty years. In many countries around the world, all organizations—public, private, or non-governmental—are expected to take reasonable steps to prevent and respond to violence in the workplace. In this webinar, Dr. Hart begins with a quick review of the nature and prevalence of workplace violence and the sources of law that place duties on workplaces to deal with the problem. He then discusses current standards of practice relevant to workplace violence prevention and intervention, including ISO and ANSI standards. Finally, he presents an integrated framework comprising eight essential elements, one that can be used to audit an organization’s strengths and vulnerabilities and determine priorities for program improvement.
This workshop is relevant for mental health professionals who conduct forensic evaluations or who intend to add forensic evaluation to their practice. This workshop is for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
Describe diverse sources of law that impose duties on workplaces related to violence prevention and intervention
Describe critical documents that set out standards of practice related to workplace violence prevention and intervention
Describe the eight elements of a comprehensive workplace violence prevention and intervention program
Describe how the eight elements can be used to audit an organization’s strengths and vulnerabilities and determine priorities for program improvement
