This is an online, Conflict Prevention course for frontline, customer-facing employees. While conflicts occur every day in these professions, the key is not to avoid them necessarily as much as it is to learn how to prevent them in the first place.
Violence in various forms often accompanies conflicts. “Avoiding” conflicts can be perceived as not dealing with an issue or “sweeping it under the rug” only to fester and come up again and again.
Conflict Prevention and ultimately Pro-active Violence Prevention focuses on the soft skills of communication, understanding emotionally driven behaviour, and being a good listener while being cognizant of Officer Safety and Situational Awareness issues.
