Work Place Violence Mitigation


An incident of Workplace violence occuring at your workplace can be emotionally devastating to your employees, it can result in costly litigation and disrupt productivity. The good news is it's fairly preventable and it begins with having an educated and informed workforce who knows what signs to look for and what to do with peaked concerns.

If it's a troubling person or a toubling situation we will work with you in developing a psychological - behavorial  composite of the person in question.   After the composite we can readily detect and work with you on the appropriate intervention strategy. Picking the appropriate intervention strategy goes back to our extensive training and experience in dealing with hundreds of threatening persons both in the public and private sector.

Let JWM & Associates work with you in terms of intellectualizing through the process of helping you safeguard your business and its employees. We will assist you in terms of getting as much essential information, as humanly possible about the troubling person and or situation in order to make a proper composite or assessment to minimize your risk.

Work Place Separations

JWM & Associates will consult and work with you and your management team to effectively engage in safe downsizing and discharges while optimizing empathetic business decisions without detrimental, adverse impacts on productivity and property.

Threat Management


Managing threats and threatening behavior requires early and appropriate intervention and requires more than just being a resourceful person. It has much to do with the art of listening and communicating and taking the appropriate action to safely abate the threat.

Any threat should be taken seriously, and never readily dismissed. We have well over a quarter of a century experience in managing threats and threatening persons. We have experience in knowing how a person will most likely act or react to any given, recognized intervention strategy.

Intervention strategies can be harmful to another or even problematical if an intervention strategy is embarked upon by someone who is not properly trained in threat intervention strategies.
