Seminar examines indicators of workplace violence

Sponsored by Workforce Solutions at Northeast State, this seminar explores developing a Threat Assessment and Management Team (a multidisciplinary team to assess the behaviors of workers, clients, students, and visitors that may be pre-incident indicators of workplace violence). The goal is to recognize these behaviors and stressors and take a proactive approach to head off those individuals on a pathway to violence, get them the assistance they need, and then take the appropriate security measures to protect those in the potential path of the future violence.

Topics include:
· History of Threat Assessment Teams (Case Studies)
· Typology of violence (Developed by the FBI)
· Developing a Threat Assessment and Management Team (TAM Team)
· Who Should be on the TAM Team

Table Tops and practice in completing mock case assessments will be completed by participants.  This course is perfect for individuals seeking to better their knowledge on violence and safety in the workplace.

The class is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 8, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  The class meets in L106 in the Wayne G. Basler Library, Blountville campus.

Course fee is $250 and includes all materials.  Class instructor is John Rose.   Rose actively served in law enforcement for more than 18 years and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. John holds a M.A. in Criminal Justice and Criminology from East Tennessee State University, where he is an adjunct faculty member and instructs classes on Counter Terrorism and Workplace Violence.
