Researching Violence at Work – Trends, Attention and Responses
How can organizations identify, prevent and manage the potential for trickle down workplace violence by building in ethical management practices, policies and procedures and how can trends in exposure to violence at work be understood and what are the measures to combat the problem? The aim of the course is to summarize current scientific knowledge and thinking with respect to an improved understanding of the emergence of work-related violence as a social problem. During the course, what is meant – and what is to be covered – by the term ‘workplace violence' is discussed, and the question of why workplace violence occurs is taken up.
