Abstract
I am very pleased and grateful to present this special issue of Workplace Violence and Aggression for Work: A Journal of Prevention, Assessment and Rehabilitation. Due to the number of submissions I am excited for the opportunity to offer two full issues of literature on Workplace Violence and Aggression. This first issue begins with a Foreword written by John Howard, Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health summarizing past efforts in this field and presenting new opportunities for focus. Denenberg and Denenberg provide us with a Sounding Board piece entitled 'Workplace Violence and the Media: The Myth of the Disgruntled Employee' that emphasizes an aggressor or aggressors in the workplace are generally only one factor during a tragic event that involves not just the work environment but challenges that likely include the non-work environment as well. I am pleased to present a case study that describes an integrative approach to threat assessment and management as it relates to security and mental health responses to a threatening client. This case study by Farkas and Tsukayama describes a successful diversion of a potentially dangerous client using an interdisciplinary approach. Dillon provides a comprehensive look at the impact, causes and prevention of workplace violence from the perspective of conflict resolution within a work organization. Gillespie et al. conducted a well-designed qualitative study that reports on emergency department workers' views of security officers' practices during actual events of aggression and violence.
