In this active, upbeat session, teens practice using “People Safety” skills to prevent, manage, or leave potentially unsafe situations with people. “People Safety” skills help prevent violence and improve communication at home, at school, out in the world, online…. everywhere, with everyone.
Using examples relevant to teenagers’ lives and tailored
for each participant’s abilities & strengths, we’ll practice skills to:
• Notice possible problems & respond quickly
• Deal with peer pressure & bullying
• Make safe choices with strangers
• Stay safe from verbal attack
• Stop unwanted attention
• Set clear, appropriate boundaries
• Act aware, calm, and confident
• Manage emotional triggers
• Get help from adults – and persist!
• Say ‘no’ in ways that are effective & practical

All skills will be tailored for each participant’s visual, hearing, mobility & cognition
as well as for their use of wheelchairs, service dogs, canes, or other assistive technology.
