Self Defense Workshop for Women – Contact Safety & Security to Schedule a Workshop
This workshop is for women at SPU (students and employees). The class is designed to teach women about the dynamics of gender based violence, the body’s natural reactions to trauma, and effective non-physical preventative measures that can help lower one’s risk of being targeted. Universal crime prevention tactics will be reviewed as well as issues specific to gender based violence. Attendees will also learn bystander intervention techniques that demonstrate how to safely intervene in potentially dangerous situations. Resources for further education and support will be available. The second portion of this class teaches physical defensive skills that are simple and easy to learn. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a class. Upcoming, open-registration classes will be announced here as well.
