Johns Hopkins Continuum of Disruptive Behaviors at Work

A subcommittee of the Joint Risk Assessment Team examined the behaviors seen in previous Johns Hopkins workplace violence cases and classified various behaviors across a spectrum adapted from Gary Namie, PhD to develop the Johns Hopkins Continuum of Disruptive Behaviors at Work. Lists of specific actions for each concerning behavior emerged as part of ongoing research on disruptive behaviors at work and early intervention and prevention of workplace violence. 

Brochures depicting the continuum and information about preventing disruptive behaviors at work from escalating are available for download or in hard copy.
