Workplace Violence Prevention Courses

Employees sometimes react to workplace challenges with inappropriate expressions of emotion or unexpected acts of violence. Workplace violence prevention experts encourage employers to provide personal and professional development courses that assist employees in managing workplace challenges. Recommended professional and personal development areas include managerial and supervisory development, managing personal emotions, assessing the emotions of others, negotiating workplace conflicts, and dealing with difficult people. The 2011-12 CUNY Professional Development Program offers specific courses in these competencies and skill-sets for managers, supervisors, professional staff, and administrative support professionals. Registration requires completion of the PDLM E-Application.  Contact your campus Human Resource Office for information about these courses.
