Topic:  Become Your Own First Line of Defense


During this zoom session, we will be discussing types of violence, types of predators, and how they operate in various situations. We will also cover different ways to respond (both prior to and during the self-defense encounter, should it become physical). Workplace violence indicators will be introduced with an emphasis on verbal de-escalation skills. Finally, we will discuss the 7 key areas of true self-defense.
