Workplace Violence & Drug Use Colon-Rivera 2 1. Who are the four contributors to the article? What are their backgrounds? Stephens J. Romano, M.A., a retired FBI special agent, operates a consulting/training firm in Greenville, South Carolina. Micol E. Levi-Minzi, M.A., M.S., a doctoral student at the Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Eugene A. Rugala, a retired FBI special agent. He’s with the Center for Personal Protection and Safety in Spokane, Washington. Vincent B. Van Hasselt, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and a police office in Plantation, Florida. 2. Do you believe that the following Workplace Violence Spectrum is applicable to most work environments? Why or why not? Yes. Workplace violence covers a wide range of disruptive behaviors that may include threats, harassment, intimidation, bullying, assaults, stalking, and domestic violence that enter the workplace. Furthermore, workplace violence can produce homicides such as active shooter, incidents, and rare events. (Romano, et al., 2011) However, many episodes that don't have involve physical violence often go unreported. Disruptive behaviors include aggressive, hostile, or emotionally abusive behaviors that generate anxiety or create a climate of distrust, and that adversely affect productivity and morale. These behaviors could, but will not necessarily, escalate into more severe behavior falling further along the Workplace Violence Spectrum.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
