Dealing with Workplace Violence and Fear or Threats of Violence Part I
Intended Audience:  All CSUN Employees

Presented By:  Anne Glavin, Chief of Police and Kristina De La Vega, Assoc. VP Human Resources

With the rise in occurrence and increased publicity of school shootings on college campuses around the United States, at CSUN we have seen an increase in the number of faculty, staff, and students who have raised concerns about their own safety and/or the safety of others.

Part I of this two-part workshop is designed to familiarize staff with the range of university resources available and how to activate those resources when responding to a variety of behaviors that may cause concern within your department. A case study format will be utilized to provide discussion about the key elements necessary when dealing with distressing, disruptive and threatening behaviors.

Part II of the workshop will deal with the worst case scenario of an active shooter situation on campus.  A dynamic video will be shown and discussion will follow to explain the survival mindset necessary in that situation as well as realistic strategies for dealing with it.  There will also be an explanation of what to expect regarding emergency response by CSUN Police.

Part II  - Thursday, November 11, 2014, 9:30 - 11:30 am.
