Who we are and how others see us can impact our safety in public spaces and how we might experience harassment or aggression. The increase in reported hate incidents ranging from verbal attacks to fatal assaults is leaving many afraid for their families and their own personal safety.  

Join us on Zoom for a webinar training with RADAR™ for easy to learn, easy to remember, and easy to employ approaches to handling hostile encounters safely and effectively.

  • Key concepts of situational awareness and early detection of potentially hostile individuals and situations 
  • Strategies for evading risks on the street, in a car, train, bus or plane, as well as in the home and workplace 
  • Basic verbal and non-verbal de-escalation techniques for talking down angry or agitated persons
