In Module One we talked about awareness, now we’re shifting gears to think about how to react in specific situations where there is a known threat.  It starts with an assessment of your aggressor which may include: 

  • Aggressor is known or unknown
  • Physicality of the aggressor
  • Intent of the aggressor
  • Obvious drug or alcohol impairment
  • Mental health concern
Puzzle pieces fitting together

You’re in a popular travel destination and there are lots of street people asking for money, giving away cards to night clubs or asking if you would like to purchase “something” a little extra. Then standing close to you there is someone who was clearly intoxicated, loud and belligerent. Know your next move by assessing if this is a threat to you or someone close to you and create space to keep safe.
