Over one in seven women have experienced stalking, and women are twice as likely as men to be stalked. This training will develop skills to identify and respond to an individual who is threateningly following you.
In an urban space like Boston, crowds are chaotic and disorienting. We will learn how to make sense of the area around you, how to observe the people in your proximity, and how use the environment to draw out a pursuer. Training will conclude with a final simulation, applying your "new skills" to leave a bar at night and get safely to public transit while identifying and responding to an unknown pursuer.
Instructor Charles Simpson holds an M.S. in Security and Resilience Studies, and will be assisted in the design and execution of the seminar with a security consultant from Washington, D.C.
We will meet at the State Street T stop in downtown Boston at 6:00 pm Friday, April 13, and Saturday, April 14. We can take up to 10 people each night. If some of the group would like to meet at the gym and take the T in together we can arrange that as well. Training will run from 6:00-8:30 pm and the cost is $85 per person.
Space is limited to 20 participants, 10 each night. This unique seminar will fill up quickly so register today via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the front desk. Please specify which day you'd like to attend: Friday, April 13, or Saturday, April 14.
