April 29: 1-Day Women’s Awareness & Safety Training



Open to all women, the 1-Day Women’s Awareness & Safety Training course is designed to help women help themselves and each other. Open to NGO workers, journalists, diplomats and others, the day-long experience includes instruction in avoidance, de-escalation and self-defense techniques, along with more specific emotional awareness skills applicable to sexual assault. The course will involve presentations and discussion, practice exercises, and controlled but realistic simulations with trained (and padded) actors. There are no longer any prior training requirements to take this course.
