Everyone, at some point, is subjected to abusive or harassing behavior in their life. This is especially problematic in the workplace. As awareness of harassment has grown, fear of being accused of inappropriate behavior has risen. Companies must now train their employees to stop harassment, but none of the training ever seems to work.
What if we could change that and provide a training that actually changed behavior for the better? What if your compliance training did more than check a box?
Federal law prohibits sexual harassment in the workplace. The EEOC encourages all employers to take steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. One of the main ways employers try to help is through sexual harassment training programs. In this course we will discuss how to create a sexual harassment training that will actually work.

Jennifer Hancock is a mom, author of several books and founder of Humanist Learning Systems. She is considered one of the top speakers and writers in the world of Humanism today. Her insights on how to combine philosophy and science to help solve our problems more effectively have helped countless people all over the world.
Jennifer’s approach to stopping bullying and harassment is unique. She specializes in teaching a behavioral approach to harassment problems. Specifically focusing on how unwanted behaviors are extinguished. There is more than 70 years of research on how to extinguish unwanted behavior and what is known has a direct impact on why harassment and bullying are so hard to stop and why attempts to stop it result in retaliation. Retaliation is predicted to occur in the behavioral model and it’s time we start taking that into account in our approaches to making it stop. Harassment is a behavioral problem and it requires a behavioral approach to stop.
