Move beyond the general structure of workplace violence programs and address the practical aspects of the behavioral underpinnings of violence. Learn about behavioral warning signs as well as practical assessment and intervention strategies that are grounded in both psychological literature and diverse experience. This session encompasses the ASIS/SHRM Workplace Violence Prevention and Intervention Standard.
Interrogation Techniques for the Workplace
Videotapes of actual interviews and interrogations are used to: discuss the interrogation process, beginning with how to initiate the confrontation; develop the theme; stop denials; overcome objections; and use the alternative question to stimulate an admission.
Investigations in the Workplace
Proper and ethical investigations are complex undertakings that are time consuming and fraught with enormous potential for legal liability. When done properly, they combine an intricate mixture of skill, experience, and luck. Few activities invoke so much risk and at the same time yield so much opportunity. Examine the intricacies of conducting proper and effective workplace investigations and review how to traverse the legal minefields and traps inherent in the process. Learn how to use the Process of Investigation® in order to yield the best results and obtain the highest ROI of time and resources.
