Safety in the Community

Identify risks and ways to increase safety for mobile workers

Description

Many behavioral health workers experience an increased risk when their work puts them in the community and going into people’s homes. Research shows that there are trends of what could lead to an unsafe situation and community based workers must be aware of for these predictors without becoming too fearful or compliant. Building the skills to recognize potential issues that may arise outside of the office is essential for the safety of the worker and people they are serving. This class covers practical strategies to promote safety before meeting with someone in the community, during a meeting, and how to leave that meeting if necessary.
