Once upon a time it was safe to go to work. Maybe that's a fairy tale because the times have certainly changed. Increased violence has become part of our everyday life, be it at home or at work. We read about it daily in the newspaper and are bombarded with violent stories from the television and radio. PROtect Yourself Now! Violence Prevention for Healthcare Workers provides an integrative, non-violent approach to dealing with physical aggression and verbal threat. Its method of information delivery is designed to help you develop greater awareness and vigilance, hone observational and judgment skills & to learn communication techniques to defuse potentially volatile situations. Physical interventions such as restraining techniques and break-away techniques may be mentioned throughout this manual but are not expanded upon as they are beyond the scope of the manual.
