FEI’s Senior Director Terri Howard will present an informative session, The Critical Importance of Situational Awareness: HR’s Role in Workplace Violence Prevention” on Aug. 23, 3 p.m. EST.

Participants also will receive practical guidance on responding to an active shooter situation.

Howard has expertise in manager consults, coaching and training and is responsible for managing many large EAP/Crisis accounts for FEI Behavioral Health. She is responsible for coordinating the people support and psychological first aid services for those impacted by a crisis, and develops drills and exercises aimed at testing current plans and procedures.
