Participants will explore organizational definitions of workplace violence, common warning signs and behaviors of perpetrators, and the prevalence of workplace violence across the U.S. Strategies to prepare, respond and recover from incidents of workplace violence also will be discussed, including workable codes of conduct, building relationships, and establishing diversity, inclusion and respect in the workplace.
