(2a) Previously, you learned about theories concerning domestic, child, and elder abuse. This week, you continue to explore victimization theories in the workplace. According to Meadows, “The number of violent acts by intruders and employees at various workplaces has been increasing. The violence resulting in the death or physical injury of an employee or business invitee is called workplace violence” (p. 98). According to some studies, police officers are most likely to be victims of workplace violence. Correctional officers, taxicab drivers, health care workers, private security workers, truck drivers, and bartenders are all at increased risks. To prepare for this week’s graded activities, please review the study guide for this week. It will give you a brief summation of the material for this lesson. This is not a comprehensive list of the information, so you will still need to read the textbook.
For this week’s class discussion, please respond to the following prompts:
- Choose any two occupations from the aforementioned list (police officers, correctional officers, taxicab drivers, health care workers, private security workers, truck drivers, and bartenders).
- Explain why these positions have high rates of workplace violence.
