Posted: Friday, January 17, 2014

Tena Dellaca-Hedrick of the Victory Noll Center spoke to local Chamber members on Friday, January 10 at the Victory Noll Center, 1900 W. Park Drive. Dellaca-Hedrick addressed the HR/Professional Development group of the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce on the topic of “The Dynamics of Interpersonal Violence.” The meeting was open to all Chamber members.

The discussion began at 12 noon and concluded at 1 p.m. This educational opportunity provided an understanding of the complex problem of interpersonal violence and how it impacts the workplace. At the completion of this training attendees were able to define interpersonal violence, identify strategies for communication with employees impacted by interpersonal violence, distinguish between effective management practices and practices of revictimization and had a broader and deeper understanding how interpersonal violence intersects with employee productivity and attendance.
