Violence and Situational Awareness in Your Institution

Being aware of your surroundings and learning to recognize and heed nuances of danger could save your life. In this session, we will learn where our greatest threats come from, how to reduce risk, and skills for dealing with danger. Why do we often get “a bad feeling” about a person or situation? We will discover where that feeling comes from and why we should trust it. Additionally, we will look at recent trends and case studies for lessons learned.

In a world of uncertainty and increasing danger, how can we protect ourselves? Early recognition and avoidance of threats can be the deciding factor in whether you become a victim or not. This session will open your eyes to critical environmental and behavioral clues that warn of danger. We will discuss cases and recent events to extract pre-incident indicators and analyze best responses. This session will also provide crucial skills to identifying threats and avoiding unsafe situations.
