Street Safety and Survival is designed to help you improve your mind’s response to emergencies, difficulties and violence. The Limbic portion of your brain is in charge of your safety and survival, it will tend to freeze during an emergency or a violent event for a few seconds and when it comes out of that freeze, you need a plan on how to react.
During this course we are going to talk about your plan for violence avoidance, evaluating an incident, knowing your surroundings and how to use them to your advantage, communication with difficult people, those in crisis or those that are having a bad mental health day. We will talk about reading the body language of an attacker and we will talk about what tools we can use to defend ourselves and our escape routes to avoid violence, including some ideas that you might not think about. All of this will help you be more confident as we work to improve your survival mindset.
The more practice and information and studying that we do together and with our teams, the more confident and prepared we can be to deal with these issues.
Now I want to make sure and mention as an overview of this course that if you work in any street or public setting as a government official, corporate or utility person, this course will provide you with some great training
