This seminar covers specific ways to increase personal and situational awareness as well as how to use basic physical defense options. Explore a variety of effective strategies to help you recognize and prevent violence before it happens, including: Identifying risky people and situations early and often. Preparing responses for potential dangers (rather than reacting when it’s too late). Everyday Habits of Awareness & safety. Methods for discouraging an attack.
