Self-Protection Conversation Stimulators
Safer Life/Safer Community
What does it mean to live a “safer” life?
We live in a world full of danger and the threat of danger. Whoever we are or where ever we live, this danger is very real. When our lives or the lives of our family members intersect with that danger, it becomes a traumatic event affecting our lives in deep, meaningful and often lasting ways. Traumatic events are difficult and upsetting experiences that cannot be completely avoided. But can the likelihood of these events be reduced in our lives? Or, at least, can their effects be reduced?
What is a Threat ?
What makes you afraid?
At Self-Protection.org we help people learn to protect themselves from threats. So, what is a threat?
Threats exist whether we can observe them or not, whether we can measure them or not, whether we can predict them or not. Threats exists independent of the individual and therefore are not the fault of individual. Threats are made up of events created by causes and effects. Understanding these causes and effects is a first step in providing the individual a basis to learn self-protection. How?
