This webinar on Legal Issues and Violence Risk is presented by Stephen D. Hart, PhD.

Workplaces have made great strides related to establishing threat assessment teams to assess and manage violence risk over the last two decades, as well as ensuring team members have the adequate skills, experience, and training to do this work.

In the course of their experience assessing and managing violence risk, workplaces have encountered complicated legal issues, and some have even faced lawsuits. This webinar focuses on critical legal issues related to violence risk assessment and management in workplaces. Increased awareness of these legal issues will assist professionals and workplaces to engage in best practices and to prevent potential liability.
