When a mass shooting occurs like the recent one in Tucson involving Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, or the one in Ft. Hood, it often seems that the shooter came out of nowhere. Studies show, however, that the perpetrators often gave off observable ‘signals’ that are often minimized and/or rationalized. Shortly after, blame is placed and lawsuits are frequently filed. In hindsight, far from coming from out of the blue, a workplace rampage often seems predictable.
Still, these acts are extremely rare. So how can we do more than guess whether our employee, independent contractor, or routine visitor is someone moving from thought to violent action and not just someone who is upset and acting out and therefore not likely to become violent? What type of assessment and intervention process is reasonable and defensible?
This Webinar will provide you with practical methods for assessing the threat of violence by individuals, and outline a process that can be followed to intervene appropriately, while showing that the organization acted reasonably in light of the existing information, so a defense can be made against claims of negligence.
This is an advanced seminar for those who want to move beyond policy and general reporting protocols and grapple with what you do when a call comes in regarding a safety from violence issue.
