Nonprofit Professional Webinar Series: Difficult Clients – Understanding Responsive Behaviours @ Online
Jun 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The nonprofit sector is not immune to workplace violence. In fact, research shows that workplace violence is three times more likely to occur among healthcare workers than any other occupation, including police officers and prison guards. Legislative changes have broadened our awareness of the issue, and have strengthened our understanding that it cannot ever be considered “just part of the job”. This session will provide you with a better understanding of client aggression and responsive behaviours and will show you how to develop a sustainable violence prevention program. This webinar will cover the following learning objectives: Highlight the prevalence of workplace violence Review the Individual Client Risk Assessment Tool Understand the 5 steps in developing a prevention program This webinar is hosted by Charity Village.
