How Intimate Partner Violence Infiltrates the Workplace
Seventy-eight percent of surveyed perpetrators used workplace resources at least once to express remorse or anger, check up on, or threaten their victims. Pam Paziotopoulos will illustrate a plan for workplace violence intervention. She will show us how to help to prevent violence from erupting in the workplace by understanding the factors of power and control, implementing effective training programs, and promoting a culture of trust.
Pam Paziotopoulos began her career in 1990 as a prosecutor for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, focusing on domestic violence. In 1996, she joined the American Prosecutor’s Research Institute’s Criminal Prosecution Division as a Senior Attorney educating and training attorneys and allied professionals. In 1997, Pam was recruited to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office to create and supervise the Domestic Violence Division. She monitored the prosecution of over 100,000 domestic violence cases each year. She created a Career Resource Center that continues to assist victims of domestic violence. She has appeared on national news programs, and the FBI’s Training Network.
