The four part series 360 SAFETY: Keeping Staff Safe by Helping Clients Feel Secure - will empower your organization to create synergy with clients while ensuring physical and environmental safety for staff. Participants learn practical strategies for prioritizing their physical safety, enabling them to focus on the client’s situation. Our system further empowers staff to maintain their personal safety by emphasizing goal centric teamwork that provides emotional security to the client. As a result, clients often transform their energy of aggression into fuel for successful case plan completion. Whether taken as a series or an individual course, the goal is to help participants better partner with clients while ensuring their own personal safety.
