Preventing Sexual Harassment
Patterns: Program One…for Employees
DVD & Facilitator's Guide with Reproducible Handouts
(Program length: 26 minutes)
Sexual harassment at work is more than a legal issue. It is fundamentally a behavioral problem. PATTERNS takes on the behavioral challenge, arming employees and managers with the information they need to prevent sexual harassment and the tools that will help them to respond when incidents occur. Through a series of short dramatizations this series describes common patterns of illegal or inappropriate behavior at work and how best to respond. We explore the habitual harasser, the smitten harasser, the bully and the jilted harasser. We also examine problematic management responses to harassment incidents, including the ostrich, the chameleon, the wounded tiger and the mother hen. Lawyers and HR professionals review each situation and present positive alternatives. Program 1, Preventing Sexual Harassment, looks at four common patterns of inappropriate behavior – the habitual harasser, the smitten harasser, the bully and the jilted harasser. How we respond to harassment will be most effective when we recognize why the behavior is occurring. This program arms employees with information and insights to help them determine the best way to get the behavior to stop. A series of dramatizations bring each pattern to life. Attorneys, human resource professionals and a troupe of exceptional actors take us through the legal, psychological, cultural and moral issues.
