Protective Behaviours is a practical down to earth approach to personal safety. It is a process that encourages self-empowerment and brings with it the skills to raise self-esteem and to help avoid being victimised. This is achieved by helping individuals to recognise and trust their intuitive feelings (Early Warning Signs) and to develop strategies for self-protection. The Protective Behaviours process encourages an adventurous approach to life that satisfies the need for fun and excitement without violence and fear.
Neighbouring counties are further ahead with embedding and seeing the benefits of this approach in their schools, with Northamptonshire having 90 Primary and 30 Secondary schools trained, and Warwickshire having all their Primary schools trained in Protective Behaviours. This is your opportunity to access this training in Oxfordshire.
