Too often, concern about safety stops adults from enjoying life fully. The truth is, a few simple “People Safety” skills can prevent or stop most harassment and violence. Our active, upbeat approach makes these skills easy to learn quickly. Invest a couple of hours with us for a lifetime of greater confidence in your ability to protect yourself and those you love!
Using examples relevant to adults of all ages, we’ll practice skills to:

• Use voice as a safety tool
• Set strong boundaries
• Take charge of emotional triggers
• Get help – and persist until you get it!
