    EXPLORING SAFETY ISSUES PRESENT IN HUMAN SERVICE SETTINGS

    Content Overview:


    Personal safety in human services has historically been a topic minimally addressed within many social service organizations but has gained the attention of NASW; The American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees; Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the US Department of Labor. A survey by NASW’s Committee for the Study and Prevention of Violence against Social Workers revealed that 51.3% of the sample reported feeling unsafe in their jobs. Additionally, 14.7% had experienced physical assault perpetrated by clients in the past year, with 30.2% having experienced this at some point in their career. This online training will discuss the importance of safety awareness, case scenarios where worker safety was compromised, legislative responses, causes of client violence toward helping professionals, predictive factors associated with violence, risky practice settings, office safety strategies, strategies for safer in-home services; appropriate worker responses to client violence, de-escalation techniques, strategies for addressing teen violence, and incident reporting. Participants will develop an increased awareness regarding safety in the field while learning risk factors associated with potential client violence and strategies for successful violence prevention. Safety is an important concern in human service work and without proper training and implementation of safety prevention strategies workers are at risk as they work with very difficult populations. Feeling unsafe contributes to professional burnout and rapid turnover in human service organizations, which ultimately affects the clients as continuity in service provision is compromised.
    Session Style: Online

    Intended Audience:
    agency staff; supervisors, administrators, students

    Learning Objectives:
  • Become knowledgeable about predictive factors and causes of client violence
  • Will gain an understanding of the national data related to worker safety and the legislative responses
  • Will learn safety tips for both home visits and while working in the office
  • Will learn de-escalation techniques to prevent client violence
  • Will understand special factors related to adolescents
  • Will understand the special considerations in cases of domestic violence.

  • REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS 06/25/2015.
