Recognizing and Reporting Disruptive Behavior (RRDB)

Recognizing and Reporting Disruptive Behavior (RRDB) training is sometimes referred to as a precursor to our Violent Incident Response Training (VIRT), in that the warning signs or “red flags” observed can help to mitigate the tragedies that have become all too common in this day and age. The presentation is delivered via a PowerPoint presentation and the length depends largely on audience interaction and participation.  Many of the principles taught during VIRT are touched on with this presentation as well, but RRDB will deal more with creating awareness as well as ways to mitigate potential acts of violence from happening before the onset of the problem(s) become unmanageable. Proactive approaches are stressed over reactive ones. Just like in VIRT, information is the best weapon against violence. Information provides knowledge, which provides options for survival during a crisis. The only bad reaction is no reaction at all.
