This training meets the requirements set forth by the BSRB and KSA 2009 Supp. 65-6313 that all new social workers must have at least six hours of social worker safety awareness training as part of the forty hours of Continuing Education that is required for licensure renewal.
Awareness is the first element of defense. Assessment of client history and the environment helps prepare social workers for dangerous situations. Use of effective communication to de-escalate emotions and self-defense will be incorporated into this training.
