Employees displaying; either overtly or covertly, Behavioral, Interpersonal or Social Problems (Aggressive, Hostile & Antagonistic Behavior) with-in the workplace have become an ongoing problem for management; not to mention coworkers, as it negatively impacts cooperation, morale, homeostasis, productivity and the overall operating environment of the organization.

Aggression and Violence has become far too common a response as individuals become all the more desensitized to aggression and violence in general as well as the perceived necessity to incorporate a hostile response to anything that, or anyone who, might prove to be an afront to the individual.

Failure to address and neutralize these behaviors; to the degree possible as many of these individuals cannot and will not modify or change their behavioral traits, has repeatedly proven to be the precursor to serious issues of Workplace Aggression, Harassment, Violence and Active Shooter Events.
