"Unfortunately, too many social workers have been targets of verbal and physical assaults and some have even tragically lost their lives while performing their job responsibilities."

* Social Work Safety, 2017


With the increasing evidence of risk in the workplace, staying safe as a human services professional is crucial at all times.  This workshop will offer practical ideas to de-escalate risk, the warning signs of risk in the field of social work, and how to protect one’s self while doing one’s job.  The workshop will be both discussion and interaction-oriented to help social work professionals recognize how to mitigate risk.


The presentation will be based on principles of non-violent intervention, Guidelines and Safety Tips for Social Workers, and the prevention of workplace violence.  Attendees will be asked to share scenarios that have presented risk and ideas to problem-solve these will be offered.  Personal, office, environmental and field issues will be examined to ensure that all situations are as risk-free as possible.
