Safety and Violence Education (SAVE) Training

  • Tuesday, April 18, 2023
  • 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Genesee Office of Emergency Management, Batavia, NY


Safety and Violence Education (SAVE) is specifically designed to provide proactive violence prevention strategies for clinical, case management, and other human service and law enforcement staff who serve young adults and older adults with mental illness in community settings. The SAVE program promotes safe practice by teaching staff to identify warning signs of impending violence, and to utilize proven methods for approaching high-risk individuals in community settings. Although incidents of serious violence against service providers are relatively rare, fallout from these events can have devastating consequences while further stigmatizing persons with mental illness. Consequences of workplace violence can include staff absenteeism, recruitment and retention problems, poor morale, and declining quality of care. Simply witnessing a violent event can be traumatic, and it can contribute to feelings of helplessness and unpredictability in the workplace.
