Sister Courage: Training on street safety
WORKSHOP 1 - Situational Awareness and Conflict Management
The first workshop starts with Situational Awareness, which trains the observer to explore the environment for points of advantage or threat. This increases confidence in the decision-making process which enables women and girls to set boundaries earlier and therefore limit harassment and abuse to a bare minimum.
This workshop explores the means to break down an environment to see the threat or support within it. This expands the options for the observer, so that the choice is truly theirs as to what boundaries they might set to avoid feeling controlled or unsafe, and how soon to set them. It covers safety in environments, understanding our own reactions in stress and reading body language, as well as the British Law for Self-Defence.
If you have any questions about the workshop or would like to book a place please contact
THESE INITIAL WORKSHOPS ARE WOMEN-ONLY.
This is a pilot workshop and depending on interest we may offer more in the future as well as workshops for different groups.
