Self-Defense for Social Workers (6-8 hour package)
Social workers and health care providers experience the highest rate of workplace violence of any profession. Yet personal safety is rarely covered in professional training programs and rarely discussed in the workplace. Even when workers do “everything right” to prevent and de-escalate violent behavior from the clients they serve, it’s not always enough. In this workshop we address the ethical and legal concerns around self-defense for social workers and help teams work together to create safety plans and develop a safety culture. We empower you with the skills to use physical force to keep yourself safe, if and when absolutely necessary.
Social workers deserve the same safety and care that they provide for their clients on a daily basis.
