The central goal of this 2 - 3 hour seminar is to better equip your staff to recognize and address aggressive, potentially dangerous behavior in the workplace. Essentially, this safety seminar that is broken down into two segments: prevention and intervention:

1) Prevention - The prevention segment focuses on safety planning, office design as well as recognizing and de-fusing a potentially dangerous situation. Employees have an opportunity to experience our reality based training style in role-play scenarios of dangerous situations in a safe environment. They are coached on how to interact and position themselves with a hostile individual.
2) Intervention - The second part of this seminar is centered on intervention and escape. It provides employees with simple yet effective physical techniques to allow them to escape from violent encounters (i.e., what to do if the aggressor grabs your wrist, your neck, your shirt). The seminar also provides realistic defenses for more violent confrontations (i.e., what to do if he knocks you to the ground and begins to choke you or kick at you).

Participants in this program are introduced to a series of role-play scenarios involving aggressive individuals. They are coached on how to use de-escalation strategies to help reduce the risk of a violent episode. Participants also learn about the range of safeguards that can be implemented at the workplace and how to use them in a potential crisis situation. Personal safety techniques are also introduced so that participants are able to defend against and escape from basic physical attacks. This seminar is an ideal prevention tool for any organization that deals with the public.

Most of our corporate participants report that they have found these personal safety skills useful in their personal as well as professional life. I would be happy to send you bio information and references upon request. Since 1994, The White Tiger Group has trained thousands. We look forward to the opportunity to work with your organization in the future and, once again, thank you for your interest.

As you go over the file with him, he becomes verbally aggressive calling you names and asks "Why are you doing this to me?" Why are you messing with me, maybe I'm going mess with you…" He begins yelling at you, he gets out of his seat and moves toward you. There is no one else in your office area
