The undisputed truth is that for many victims of violence, the workplace is the only escape they have from the day-to-day trauma. And it’s frequently the only venue for resources. This program, available in two format choices enables managers and HR to take a realistic look at domestic abuse to understand the complex dynamics; and why, and how theirs, and every, workplace is affected. Attendees learn their critical role and responsibilities, state DV laws, policies; and how to mitigate potential violence and lawsuits. Program includes entertaining yet informative skill practices to give strategies and tools immediately applicable for the workplace.
By the end of this program attendees are able to:
• Name the cost-affected areas of the organization
• Explain the human toll on the organization
• Describe the dynamics of intimate partner abuse
• Know applicable laws
• Describe your responsibilities as a supervisor
• Demonstrate active listening skills
• Coach employees towards seeking appropriate services
“I decided to purchase the DVD, so I could reinforce the learning as often as I wanted. It helped me feel ready to assist employees, to know how to approach someone. Best of all, it really took the fear and misconception out of being a therapist. I understand now that that’s not my role. But I’m a prepared manager now” says Stevie Gold, HR Generalist II at a transportation service provider.
