Center for Aggression Management
John D. Byrnes, D.Hum-hc is a successful businessman, author and lecturer who became interested in the subject of aggression management
after concluding that there were no comprehensive training programs dedicated to preventing aggression in the workplace. His research revealed
that other methods being used to deal with conflict and violence were not working.
In 1993, Mr. Byrnes formed the Center for Aggression Management to train organizations and individuals to use aggression management
techniques to recognize aggressive behavior and to prevent violence by managing aggressive behavior. This training has demonstrated to individuals
and employers that they can prevent aggression rather than merely react to it and, thereby, reduce the risk of aggression related violence, reduce
risk management costs, and improve productivity.
In 2013, after two years of application, the Crticial Aggression Prevention System (CAPS) was scientifically validated by Eastern Kentucky
University's Student Assistence and Intervention Team (SAIT) members.
Mr. Byrnes was selected by the US Department of Labor to represent the United States at the Violence as a Workplace Risk Conference held in
Montreal, Canada. This conference is a joint effort by the United States, Canada and Mexico through the North American Agreement on Labor
Cooperation (NAALC), the NAFTA labor side agreement. Byrnes expressed his views at the conference: "These are vigilant times. Aggression is on
the hearts and minds of most all in North American. Whether in Afghanistan or in workplaces or our schools, aggression is something that we must
get our arms around and vanquish. All North Americans, young and old alike, should have the right to feel safe when they go to work or to school."
Mr. Byrnes conducted Insider Threat Prevention Training for the US Army Special Operations Command, Terrorism Division in 2016.
Mr. Byrnes has been interviewed on workplace violence by most major news outlets and has presented at over 100 conferences dealing with
workplace, campus, church or school violence. He received an honorary doctorate of humanities in 2000 for his discovery and development of
