When you walk into a human services  organization, do you think about your safety? What about when you  prepare to make a home visit or attend a meeting in the community? As a  social worker, you may find yourself in situations in which your  personal safety is at risk. Although you, as an administrator, cannot  prepare for every situation, you should be proactive and put a plan into  place to address issues related to workplace violence in the event that  it occurs.
For this Assignment, focus on the  Zelnick et al. article on workplace violence and consider what plan you  might want to have in place if you were an administrator having to  address a similar workplace violence situation.
Assignment (2–3 pages in APA format):
Draft  a plan for a human services organization explaining how to address  traumatic emergency situations. Include both how to respond to the  emergency and how to address any long-term effects. Finally, based on  this week�s resources and your personal experiences, explain your  greatest concern about the safety of mental health professionals working  in a human services organization.
