Overview

What do corporate threat managers and HR personnel frequently cite as their biggest challenge in dealing with workplace violence cases? Employees who refuse assistance, return to dangerous relationships, or keep silent about risk despite the company’s best efforts to help them.

Domestic violence threat assessment and management expert Lynn Fairweather takes on this difficult issue by offering participants practical ideas for bringing victims “to the table” and preserving their trust so they can access the entire spectrum of aid their employer provides.

Featuring simple but powerful guidelines for victim contact and communication, this 60 minute webinar will help your team to view and approach domestic violence training differently, with an eye toward better case management. Attendees will examine real case examples, and gain insight into workplace bullying training by answering thought provoking questions. Includes information on salvaging a “collapsed case”, and exercising last resort options for safety and cooperation. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of victim behavioral motives and walk away with new strategies for effective, successful employee awareness training.

Why Should You Attend

Corporate threat managers, security, and human resources personnel are all responsible for helping to maintain safety in the workplace. But, if you don’t know what threats are lurking below the surface, or don’t understand the nature of the ones you can see, your company may suffer immeasurable human and financial losses.

Domestic violence is an insidious enemy to the American workplace: Over 60% of women and many men have been physically, sexually, or severely emotionally abused by an intimate partner, and three quarters of those victims are employed. The violence and harassment that often follows them to work can pose significant danger to staff and customers, while invisibly stealing billions of dollars per year in absenteeism, lost productivity, higher health care costs, increased liability, and reduced employee retention.

When a private employer neglects to educate its employees on workforce violence policy, fails to establish a culture of trust and disclosure among employees, and remains ignorant to the true reality that victims face, then they are “flying blind” with no way to see the potential risks ahead of them. If an employee involved case “collapses” and tragedy strikes, companies (as well as the communities in and around them) may take years to financially and emotionally recover from the damage. Domestic violence in the workplace can be a complex, high stakes problem, but it isn’t one without solutions. Don’t miss your team’s opportunity to learn how to face employee involved cases with confidence and security.

Areas Covered In This Webinar

This 60 minute webinar begins with an introduction that gives the audience a first-hand look into the perspective of an employed domestic violence victim. By sharing a piece of her own story as an abuse survivor, Facilitator Lynn Fairweather opens up a frank discussion about “DV Case Collapse”, and some of the “victim defection” issues that can arise in employee involved domestic violence cases.

Participants are then introduced to three guiding fundamentals that will help them to better understand and assist the victims in their workforce.

Principle One explains the necessity and the mechanics of establishing a workplace culture that encourages disclosure and trust. Attendees will learn how to convey this concept through policy and system wide awareness campaigns.

Principal Two stresses the importance of sensitively supporting employee victims from the first contact to the closing of the case and uses a short, entertaining video to demonstrate the “right” way and the “wrong” way to approach a victim. Participants are also offered Ms. Fairweather’s Seven Steps to a Best Practices Approach, so they can walk into their next employee-victim meeting with a sense of compassionaten confidence.

Principle Three brings the audience on a journey into the mind and motivations of an employed victim so that they can better understand why cases might take the unpredictable turns that they often do. Featured areas of exploration are victim fear, appeasement strategies, “abuse brainwashing”, external pressures, historic or systemic issues, and emotional attachments.

Next, attendees will be given a blueprint for attempting a salvage a floundering case, in an effort to avoid victim defection. Suggestions include re-examining initial contacts, “switching batters”, reviewing the feasibility of prior recommendations, and utilizing the assistance of a subject matter expert. Ms. Fairweather reveals the importance of timing, and introduces participants to the “Cycle of Violence”, shedding light on both the victim’s and batterer’s perspectives. Finally, the discussion turns to a practical conversation on “last resort” options, with an eye toward victim autonomy and overall workplace safety.

Ms. Fairweather concludes the training by offering participants further domestic violence resources.
