Session on Workplace Violence

Workplace Training
We hope that this session can help people recognize potentially alarming behavior before it is acted upon.

Santa Ana, Calif. – The American Red Cross is inviting representatives from local businesses and schools to attend a special meeting on workplace violence by clinical and forensic psychologist Manny Tau, Psy.D.

The session, which has no cost to guests attending for the first time, will be held on March 13 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at 600 Parkcenter Drive in Santa Ana. The focus of the meeting will be threat assessments and predatory behaviors, including warning signs and survival strategies.

“Unfortunately, there have been recent incidents in the news that have forced us all to question how we can prevent workplace violence,” said Debbie Graves, the Red Cross’s regional director for preparedness and community education. “We hope that this session can help people recognize potentially alarming behavior before it is acted upon.”

Tau is a clinical and forensic psychologist specializing in threat assessments and active threat management. He has more than 16 years of field experience and has been consulted extensively with many federal, state and private organizations around the county.

This session is part of a monthly series hosted by the Red Cross’s Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Alliance, which provides a forum for companies, schools and community organizations to share up-to-date information with the ultimate goal of minimizing injury and damage and speeding recovery.

To sign up for the presentation on March 13, or for more information on the DPRA, please contact Monica Ruzich at or (714) 481-5329.
