This hybrid level I-III class is only for Sharp HealthCare Behavioral Health Services employees who have direct interaction with patients. It is designed to provide training to help you prevent violence in the workplace via a program known as AVADE (awareness, vigilance, avoidance, defense, escape/environment).

This training offers informative, proactive strategies and interventions that can help prevent and mitigate fear, conflict, and aggression while creating a culture of safety. The class is comprehensive and relevant to stop the escalation and reduce the risk of injury to staff.

You will receive training strategies and techniques to mitigate escalated and violent behavior through proactive communication skills and techniques for real-world escalated situations. The five-hour in-person session will also cover workplace violence, verbal de-escalation techniques, self-defense tactics, and defensive control tactics.
