Sigma Theta Tau International selected the Review Theme in which one of the agreed conclusions of the sixtieth session state the Commission on the Status of Women strongly condemns all forms of violence against all women and girls. Our topic empowers those who may be affected by violence so they may recognize the risk factors and take proactive actions to potentially avoid the escalation of these behaviors. As we are providing practical applications to workplace, home, and social setting incivility, bullying, and violence, we expect attendees to become more educated about how to recognize, understand the behavior of, and de-escalate the actions of others. Having the knowledge of how to be proactive in these settings can lessen the risks of violence being perpetrated. Preventative measures in this area can be linked to Sustainable Development Goals 3, 5, 8, and 16. As Sigma Theta Tau International is a nursing organization, 94% of our members are women and the potential for violence in the workplace, home, and social setting is impactful. Plus, nurses many times are the first person to assess the risk of danger. Because of this we are responsible to empower all individuals with the means to reduce the possibility of being in an unhealthy, negative situation.
DescriptionGlobally, direct and indirect violence against women is on the rise. The World Health Organization estimates that 35 percent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. Remaining unreported are instances of incivility, bullying, or threats of violence. This session illuminates the precursors to violence against women. Presenters will teach critical, practical skills for understanding and quickly identifying the underlying causes of incivility/bullying behaviors at home, work, or in social settings. Participants will learn de-escalation techniques when confronted with these behaviors and how to statistically determine a woman’s personal risk level for life-threatening physical violence.
