diverse meetingDuring a routine home visit, Diruhi Mattian, one of our staff members, was killed by a 19 year old client. In response to her death, Family Continuity, along with NASW—MA School of Social Work and other private and state agencies convened the  “Maximizing Social Worker Safety Task Force” to address workplace safety for Social Workers. As a result of this work, new state legislation went into effect in 2015 requiring employers of agencies that receive funding from EOHHS to create safety plans for their workplaces and prepare their staff for potential dangers on the job.

 In response to the legislative requirements, Family Continuity developed a premier workplace training program that exceeds legislative requirements and has been presented to over 3,000 workers throughout the state.

Training topics may include:

  • Assessing safety risks across a spectrum of situations
  • Identifying potential crises and what to do in a crisis situation
  • Managing power struggles
  • Identifying when to get out of a situation
  • Understanding aggression and anger
  • Learning how to handle workplace violence such as abductions, domestic violence in the workplace, and active shooters on site
  • Assessing violence risk
