Event description

Description

Safe for Life is a free, two-hour workshop for women. It has been designed to teach women how to protect themselves from physical threat using their intuition before it becomes necessary to defend themselves.

The workshop is taught in a fun manner, with alcohol messaging embedded so you get multiple benefits. You will be armed with strategies to deploy if they find yourself in a compromised situation, and some skills around how to de-escalate potentially harmful situations.

The workshop has four stages:

  • Recognition, awareness and avoidance (of potentially risky situations and the role alcohol consumption can play in leading to risky situations)
  • De-escalation – de-escalation strategies when confronted or placed in a dangerous situation
  • Defence – if absolutely required as a last resort
  • Post event issues – addresses the often neglected ‘aftermath’ of bad situations.

Also incorporated into the workshops is safe alcohol messaging to raise awareness around alcohol consumption, particularly around high risk drinking behaviours, and to improve alcohol-related health literacy, for example, how to avoid acute alcohol-related harm.

The workshop is delivered by Phil Thompson, Director of Protect Self Defence.

This workshop is free thanks to generous support from The Warehouse Bags for Good from the Elliot St & Newmarket Warehouses.
